    Surprisingly, there's no holiday; unlike St. Patrick's day or St. Andrews day. I still have to go for lectures :frown1:

    I'm celebrating tonight with the family...it's a shame that we don't have a national holiday, we have an awesome history and heritage.

    Happy Saint Georges!

    For those not 'in the know'.

    There always tend to be many who are apathetic at Saint Georges Day, then again, many are also very active in their celebration.

    And it's definitely not redundant in the two big street parties happening right now in my local area, or in the many pubs in this town, or in this English family. We tend not to be cynical, else there'd be no point celebrating!

    Pub dinner tonight with many pints of Harvey's Best.

    Bottoms up old chaps!
