Happy St George's Day!

Happy St George's Day! I find it a little sad that most people in England know when St Patrick's Day is, and all the pubs have big promotions, but our own national day passes without a bat of the eyelid. Other countries celebrate Independence Day, Bastille Day, Waitangi Day and so on. So here's to St George!

  1. Apparently they cancelled the celebrations in Coventry because of lack of interest :\ Happy St. George's Day :)

  3. I must admit a colleague wished me happy St George's Day today and I had to think twice! They do celebrate St David's day here and all the little girls go to school in Welsh dress but I don't remember doing anything for St George's Day when at school in Bristol!

    BTW I did chuckle when I saw your WMHB photo too, didn't give it away though as I thought it would make you laugh when you saw mine :0(Did the big red heart tonight, have to do things that are in close proximity as apparently I can't count!)
