St George’s Day
Saint George, born between the years 275 and 285 AD, is the Patron Saint of England. He is widely celebrated around the world in Anglican Churches and various Christian denominations.
The reason why we write about him today is that he died on April 23rd 303 and therefore today is St George’s Day.
Another reason is that he is the Patron Saint of skin disease sufferers and syphilis patients.
Now I bet you didn’t know that!
