I mixed up my dates, and so forgot that St. George's day is this Thursday.
I think everyone should have a day off to celebrate our patron saint. Not so much out of my sense of national pride, as out of the desire to have a day off. St. Paddy's day is famous for the drinking of Guiness, ours should be famous for somthing.
After all, St. George was a very busy man it seems, taking time to be patron saint of Aragon, Catalonia, England, Ethiopia, Georgia, Greece, Lithuania, Palestine, Portugal, and Russia
as you do
