Recently, Marc Miller, said this in the Traveller RPG Headquarters group on Facebook:
Marc Miller on Facebook wrote:You can expect that Star Wars people will post something about "May The Fourth (Be With You)" on May 4, but Traveller has always claimed May 1st as its day.

First I've heard of it. If I could find a group locally and maintain it for a year, I'd definitely celebrate it with the first edition of the game.
