    A very happy St.Georges day to my fellow Englishmen. A day that should be observed more methinks.

    Certainly should be a National Bank Holiday! The Irish certainly have the right idea when it comes to St Patrick's Day!

    Happy St George's Day to all of England!

    Well I knew there was a lot of import, but shouldn't be that countrymen? Or are you and the other the one and only original English alive? ;-)

    I was about to mention it. I will see in a week time King Lear directed by... Sam Mendes. My way to commemorate.

    Yes there was..... a man with many talents, especially one for making a bondgirl advent calendar every year, a man of wit and humour, of style and class. What happened? we don't know, but I do wish he's return here soon! Perhaps @Retrokitty knows more, but I haven't seen her for some time now.

    Ah that's a pity. And @RussianMummy as well I suppose. @Dusty? I feel old now.. not only because of my birthday..

    Is it your birthday today ?

    Well this day in the English calendar is fast approaching,and once more it is STILL not a holiday in England.

    To make things worse,it falls on a Monday this year,so it would have made a brilliant long weekend !!!

    English pubs can get extended licences for St Patrick's Day, but not St Georges day.

    Typical that the English are embarrassed to admit to their identity. I remember when it was Shakespeare's 400th anniversary and we more or less ignored it. But when it's Robbie Burns birthday - oo wee. Let's get the bunting out.

    This thread should be closed for being racist.

    Celebrating being English? Disgusting and about time it was outlawed frankly.

    And "Saint" George? Religious indoctrination of the worst kind, isn't it, Wiz?

    Most Saint's days and religious holidays are revanped, sometimes barely modified, Pagan holidays. If a woman wears raunchy red lingerie on Valentine's Day, it's not to convert her boyfriend or husband to Catholicism.

    Beside St George's Day is a national day celebrating English people, not a fictitious saint who killed a dragon. Just like International Translators' Day is on the 30th of September, which coincides with the Feast of St Jerome, patron of translators (as he translated the Bible from Hebrew). Sometimes religious traditions become secularised.
