The May 4th for some years it has been universally recognized as it Star Wars Day (due to how the date is pronounced in English i.e. May the 4th) and also Google he wanted to join the celebrations.

A cute and original easter egg to join the celebrations of this anniversary dear to all fans of Star Wars.
This date was chosen because of the play on words in English between the famous quote “May the Force be with you” (what does it mean “May the force be with you“) And the phrase”May the fourth be with you” (“May 4th be with you“); all this combined with the fact of the double meaning of the word May (in relation to the context, it can mean both “may” and “May”) and the assonance between the words Force (“Force”) and fourth (“Fourth”).
The first appearance of this motto, however, does not seem attributable to the Star Wars fandom: in fact, on May 4, 1979 Margaret Thatcher became the first woman to be elected Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and her party published in the The London Evening News a wish that read “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.“, Also reported in the parliamentary report of the UK Parliament.
