To be honest I didn't remember it is St George's Day Blush I thought about it the other day but it had slippped my mind!

I haven't anything planned to celebrate but I do think that more should be made of it!

I think we should celebrate it even if I'm not entirely sure what we are celebrating, but I think thye had the right idea in eastenders, everyone get dressed up and drink loads. :thumbsup:
As long as we get a day off work too I'm up for it.
Should we start a petiton for Downing street?

Well they vetoed Trafalgar Day as a public holiday in case it upset the French I was annoyed as that is my birthday would've been great never having to work on it, its also the first day of the Dublin meet.

Maz, are you saying we are getting a bank holiday on 21st October? A friday?
What's the catch, and when was all this decided and what do the French have to do with it?

No unfortunately not is was discussed a few years ago and vetoed then as usuitable because of upsetting the French. There had been a discussion about an extra bank hoilday but never read anymore about it after that.

We should have an extra one around about October too
The scots have nine so should we!
Just been having a look on the web and it seems that there is going to be a series of special events to mark the 200th anniversary of the battle victory.
So if the celebrations are going ahead without any thought to the french, why can't we have a day off.
According to the website: parties, lunches and dinners will be taking place all over the country.
:confused: I'd not heard anything about this until maz mentioned it!
Will we tell them theat all the best folk will be in Dublin that day, so stuff the lunches.

A few facts about St George curtesy of Google.

He was born in Turkey in the 3rd century became a Roman soldier at the age of 17. He was imprisoned and tortured because he protested against the Roman's persecution of Christians and beheaded at Lydda in Palestine on April 23rd 303. He is the patron saint of soldiers,archers,sadlersand riders ,calvary and chivalry and helps those suffering from leprosy,plague and syphilis.

Top bloke so heres to you St George :wine: might just make a day of it.
