St. George’s Day!

Posted by on April 12, 2013

England-St-George-FlagAlthough not an official bank holiday, St. George’s Day is a very special celebrated day on 23rd April.

A traditional custom used to be wearing a red rose in one’s lapel, although is not as common as it used to be, you still might be able to spot people on the street following this customary behaviour. Another tradition is to fly or adorn the St George’s Cross flag in some way: on your door, from your windows, halls, lobbies, pubs in particular can be seen on 23 April festooned with garlands of St George’s crosses. Traditional English foods and drink are usually served as well.

This day is commemorated in any place where St. George’s the patron saint.
