Happy St. George’s Day!

Happy St. George’s Day!

On St George’s Day, English people remember England’s patron saint, St. George, who died on April 23. According to legend, St. George was a Roman soldier who killed an evil dragon and saved a beautiful princess. St. George’s Day is England’s national day but it is no longer a public holiday. Celebrations traditionally include parades and dancing. Many buildings fly the English flag which bears the red and white cross of St. George. Some people chose to wear a red rose as a mark of respect. For more information see https://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/uk/st-george-day
