Time to Celebrate St George

First we had St David's Day, the St Patrick's - now it is the turn of St George. As the patron saint of England, St George's Day is celebrated by the nation on Thursday 23rd April.

St George's Day is not a typical national day, and doesn't call for grand spectacles and shows of patriotism. But it doesn't mean it can't be celebrated! First you need to find out the story of St George and how he came to be the patron saint of England. Then, get in the spirit of the holiday, by displaying the iconic cross of St George all around.

Later in the year all the Scots amongst us will celebrate St Andrew's Day, but for now, it is time to celebrate St George!

Are you going to be wearing a rose for St George's Day?
