May the 4th be with you, Delaware

It's the day when you're allowed to play with your Star Wars toys at work — as long as you put it on social media.

Happy Star Wars Day.

Happy Star Wars Day!

Let’s start with a fun fact found on Twitter: The original “Star Wars” film was first shown in Delaware on May 25, 1977 at the Tri-State Mall in Claymont, one of just 45 theaters to screen it on its opening day. At the time, Tri-State Mall, which closed in 2015 after decades of decline, had one of the few twin movie theaters — and it turned into a triple for “Star Wars.”

Today, we have Disney+, which is premiering its new Star Wars title “The Bad Batch,” and a whole holiday to celebrate the franchise.

We kept an eye out for #maythe4thbewithyou posts on Twitter and Instagram with a Delaware twist throughout the day. Here are some of our favorites, in no particular order:
