The words of Lucas May the force be with you (“let the force be with you”), simultaneous interpreter for German language is translated as 4 Am. Mai sind wir bei Ihnen (“We shall be with you on may 4”). The interview was aired on TV Total on may 18, 2005, together with the translated phrase. This pun very much fans of the films and every year about this “memorable date” to find out more and more people.

Despite the fact that such retail stores as Target, sell swimwear all year round, they are usually actively replenish the shelves in early spring. When in may will become warmer – you’ll want to buy a new one. But if your last year’s bathing suit you can wear another season, then go back to the store in September. It was then that the sellers will actively sell this product.
