St. George's Day is held on April 23 in honor of Saint George, England's patron saint
St. George's Day is a Christian feast day celebrated annually on April 23
in honor of Saint George, the patron saint of England, who is said to have died on April 23, 303.
While the tradition of celebrating St. George's Day has waned a lot compared to the Middle Ages, it has seen a bit of a revival in recent years, and organisations such as English Heritage are encouraging celebrations of English customs on the day. Performances of Morris dancing and Punch and Judy are held, and traditional English food and drink is consumed. The flag of Saint George, a red cross on a white field, is flown widely, especially in pubs.
Saint George was a Roman soldier of Greek origin who died for his Christian faith. He never came to England and had no connection with the country.
St. George's Day, also spelled Saint George's Day, is not a public holiday in England. It is one of the four Saints' days of the four nations that make up the United Kingdom:
