Happy St George’s day and congratulations to those that are actually celebrating your patron saint today. I’m not a native but I’m having a slight nod to St George at a dragon themed medieval banquet tomorrow but this is more to do with my love of dragons and not dragonslayers. So why is it not celebrated as much as other patron saints? People like the BNP will argue that immigrants have stopped the celebration as it may upset them, but I do not believe this is true. While immigration is not as strong in the rest of the British Isle as England it still happens and the patron saints are still celebrated. Tell me what you think the reason is and what celebrations you are doing.
