    Ooh! How exciting!

    Are we allowed to kick a Scottish person or something, today?

    As St George was from what is now part of Turkey, I think it’s only fitting, that any celebratory feast should contain food from that region.

    So, beer and kebabs all round, then! Woohoo!

    Can we have a St Georges day every week?

    It’s St Georges day, apparently it’s also the day Shakespeare was born (there or thereabouts) and died.

    I for one will be using it as an excuse for a quick beer in the sun at lunchtime, what are we all doing to celebrate?

    I’m only joking. I woon’t really kick a Scottish person. They’ve got enough problems as it is!

    Actually, I think having Turkish food would be quite apt. I have a load of peppers in, I may get some minced lamb and Haloumi cheese, and do some stuffed peppers. Bit of rice, and I also have some vine leaves in, which I could also stuff…

    Hmm.

    All I know is that one poor lad thought he would come to school dressed as a dragon, all of the other boys went to school as knights, that’s one dragon that’s going to be slayed alot today 🙂

    Seems that all the scaffold companies in London are doing an unofficial procession of their lorries covered in George Crosses and people dancing around on the back of them.

    Excellent

    Rudeboy, St Patrick was from what is now called Wales but it doesn’t stop the Irish celebrating International Guinness Marketing Day.

    Typical English! celebrating an act of environmental despoliation by a toff in a tin suit.

    That was the last dragon.

    The Welsh should never forgive him.

    The problem with St George is :

    He was born in ,what is now, Turkey

    Lived in Palestine

    Become a Roman Soldier

    He is also the Patron Saint of : Portugal, Georgia,Catalonia ,Palestine , Istanbul , Moscow and Germany

    He has also been made the Saint of the Plague and Syphillis

    Nobody knows what he actaully did to become a Saint ( hardly any information on him unlike other saints )

    He never set foot in England

    Er, George refused to renounce his Christian Faith & was therefore killed by Roman Officialdom.

    His Cross represents his blood flowing between the white limestone paving at the site of his execution.
