Thanks for that reminder! That means it's my dad's saint's day or whatever...

Sadly, waving the Cross of St George still has some racist connotations in England, so the English generally have not celebrated this day in the way for example, the Irish celebrate St Patrick's day. It is about time we reclaimed St George from such extremists.

Incidentally St Patrick was British and St George was Turkish!

St George is supposed to have killed a dragon which makes him 'paleo' in my book! :)
