St. George's Day is on 23rd April. This is a National Day for England and the Feast Day of St. George. 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 the 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 which is a red cross on a white background and to wear a red rose which is the National Flower in a lapel.
This is a day to celebrate all things England. Whether you are planning a St. George’s Day Party, enjoying the festivities in a pub or bar or marking the day at work we have lots of St. George’s Day ideas for you to add to the enjoyment of the day. A red and white theme is the place to start and St. George’s Bunting is ideal to put up anywhere to show what the party is all about as are Red and White Balloons which can be tied in bunches and can fill a room. Putting up St. George’s Day Decorations of British Cutouts and a Royal King & Queen capture the occasion and St. George’s Decoration Packs are a fantastic choice. St. George’s Day Flags are essential for a St. George’s party theme and we have a selection of sizes, 3ft x 2ft, 5ft x 3ft and 8ft x 5ft, to choose from to suit your needs as well as St. George’s Table Flags which are the perfect table decoration. St. George's Hand Waving Flags are always good fun and are ideal to wave at any parade or event. No St. George’s Day would be complete without seeing those having fun with their face painted Red and White and their hair sprayed to match or wearing a Red and White Curly or Jester Wig or a St. George’s Day Bowler Hat with a St. George’s Cape draped around them. If face painting is not for you, wearing a St. George’s Day Sash or Glasses looks just as effective.
This is the time to start getting ready for St. George’s Day and thinking about how you will be celebrating. How are you celebrating this year? Will you like us be decorating your office? We would love to hear from you.
