St. George's Day is on Wednesday 23rd April and is a National Day for England and the Feast Day of St. George. This is a day to celebrate all things England and to use loads of St. George’s Decorations such as British Cutouts and St. George’s Bunting and to wave St. George’sHand Held Flags . In 1922 the Council of Oxford declared April 23rd to be St. George’s Day. In 1415 St. George’s Day became the National Feast Day and a holiday in England but after a union with Scotland at the end of 18th Century this tradition faded and it is now no longer a holiday. There is a well known story of how St. George saved a Princess by coming off of his horse and slaying a dragon on foot. Long established customs are to fly the St. George Flag and to wear a red rose in a lapel.
