PATRIOTS across England have hit the beer gardens to Celebrate St Geroge’s Day.
The national day is all about celebrating England and St George who is the patron saint of England.
Edward III chose St George to be a symbol of the English for his chivalry and courage when he formed the Order of the Garter in his name in 1348.
Eddie Hughes MP celebrated on Twitter tweeting: “Proud of our great country and our flag? Best wishes for a happy and patriotic #StGeorgesDay ”
Salford lad and Patriot Sam Close, who was celebrating told Politicalite:”England is the greatest country in the world… Other countries just like to hold grudges from things that happened 500 years ago… Nothing but jealousy and try make out we’re racist … But have no problem celebrating St David’s Days, St Andrews Day and ESPECIALLY St Patrick’s Day.”
Joseph Afrane tweeted: “Today is 23 April 2019. Please I am wishing all My #english friends in #theuk and English all over the world a very happy St George’s Day #england #StGeorgesDay”
Saint George was best known for the day he slayed a dragon, and his refusal to denounce Christianity.
Even though he is the patron saint of England, he was in fact born in Cappadocia, modern day Turkey.
He died in Lydda, which is now Israel.
Saint George became the patron saint of England more than 400 years ago, replacing St Edmund the Martyr.
