St George is the patron saint of England and a myriad of other countries.In ancient times, it was a major celebration until its popularity diminished.
National celebrations are a big event all over the world, yet, in , , it’s not even a bank holiday.People actually bemoan this fact but other than that, most English people aren’t fussed or interested in celebrating.
This used to surprise me.I was an expat child and thus I’ve lived in various countries all over the world.
Australia has Australia Day, a day (or more) of joyous celebrations.France has Bastille day and of course I always remember fondly the 4th of July parties I’ve been invited to.
So what am I? English, of course, even tough I used to refer to myself as British as a child.I still dither between the two, sometimes saying English, other times British, depending on where I am and who I’m with.
