  • St George

    Published in April 2004

    April 23rd is St. George’s Day. He is famous in many countries in Europe and the Middle East. He is patron saint of England, although, unlike neighbours Ireland and Wales, the English don’t have much in the way of a formal celebration to mark his feast day. A few pubs will probably hang the English flag (red cross on a white background) up outside. It may even surprise many English people to learn that not only was St. George not English, but probably never set foot in England during his life. Despite this, he is famous for having apparently slain a dragon on Dragon Hill at Uffington in Berkshire, England.
