St. George’s Day – Have a Happy One!

Standard

They even sell St George’s Day cards in the shops now! It isn’t generally celebrated as much as we join in St. Patrick’s Day. With countries so closely connected I think a lot of us have British Heritage rather than 100% English (We have to leave that to cheese and such things)!

Still there are always local places where you can celebrate this special day and raise a toast to the Patron Saint of England.

I guess one of the problems is it isn’t a public holiday – people are at work.

Just as we share St. George as a Patron Saint with other countries, he has to share his special day with some other BIG figures of history.

It is also William Shakespeare’s birthday and World Book Night!
