Today is St George’s Day.

Today is St George’s Day. You knew that, didn’t you? You mean you are English, and didn’t know when the English patron saint’s day was?
It’s a shame that we don’t have pageants and parades for our patron saint’s day as they do in other countries. We don’t even get rip-roaringly-rat-arsed like some Irish people do for St Patrick’s Day. I’m not sure why though – perhaps it is because it isn’t seen as de rigeur to celebrate Englishness these days, although somehow I suspect it has more to do with apathy and laziness on the part of the English people.
Still, I’ll be going to the pub tonight after college, and I’ll be sure to have a swift pint to celebrate St George.
