Did you know that St George was a third-century Roman soldier from modern-day Turkey? ~Cappadocia
Since the 14th century Saint George has been widely regarded as a the patron saint & protector of England.
You might think of him clad in armour, slaying a dragon and rescuing a maiden. It is all a medieval invention. Still we still a good legend, don't we?
Beside all the historical facts, I was very surprised to learn that many other countries celebrate today. In Spanish it is called "Dia de San Jorge" & in Catalonia they make special cakes.
Here is an eyebrow rising list of the countries that will celebrate St. Georges Day today:
So you would like to join your local celebrations to commemorate this early Christian martyr or if you don't live in any of this countries, Have a Pimms in his name :)

Nailsea Fire Station,
I started as a BME Intercultural Agent with Age UK Somerset in October and it has been excellent to meet people from Jamaica, Chile, Philippines, Turkey, China, India and Guatemala.
Today I went to Winscombe market in the Community Centre and I met Sonia who is from Chile and has been a resident for over 20 years. She doesn't know anybody from Chile in the area but I have and I hope to connect them.
She does very specialized cards with oil colours, place mats and Latinamerican jellies that I had the delight to taste.
Her daughter is off to Cuba tomorrow to raise funds for the British Liver Trust and I thought to give her a mention for their work in the community here in England.
If you know anybody from the BME communities in Portishead, Clevedon, Nailsea, Worle, Yatton, Congesbury, Weston or surrounding villages, please get in contact with me.
We have social events, handcrafts, exercises, free IT lessons, benefit checks and more for the residents of Somerset.
