The day of patron Saint George was once a highly celebrated holiday in England with feasting and celebrations on par with those of Christmas. With origins all the way back to the 3rd century, St.George is modernly identified with the English ideals of charity, chivalry, and courage (something we all wish for in a man!).
A traditional custom in England on this day is to wear a red rose (the national flower) on one’s lapel. Pubs in England can also be seen proudly flying the St. George’s cross flag on this day. So grab a pint and toast to the Queen to celebrate this long-held British holiday!
