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
