St George’s is the patron Saint of England but also Catalonia. Traditionally women receive a rose in remembrance of St George’s saving the princess from the dragon. We also celebrate Shakespeare’s death by purchasing books. The streets of Barcelona will be lined up with flower stalls and book stalls and there will be a fantastically friendly atmosphere. Of all the days of the year I would like to be in my home town today certainly has to be it! Happy Saint George’s Day! Buy yourself a flower and a book!
