It’s St. Georges Day – Why Isn’t This A National Holiday For England ?



He is the Patron Saint Of England. His cross has been adopted as the flag of England and is the core of the Union Flag. Yet few celebrate St. Georges day. There are parades held around the country but the most people are at work.

The shameful fact is that more people will take the time to celebrate St Patrick’s day than will bother with St Georges day.

St Georges day should be the day that we celebrate the actions of members of UK forces and other extraordinary ordinary folks around the UK. It’s time our government helped generate some patriotism.
