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!
