At diablog we are always happy to celebrate something.
And since our two gents here are English, at least sort of, today we can celebrate St. George’s Day.
St. George, of course is the patron saint of England and his “colors”,
the St. George’s Cross, was the flag of England until 1606, when it was merged with the St. Andrew’s cross of Scotland.
But St. George is celebrated in tons of places and the red cross appears in dozens of flags. So, let’s make it an inclusive celebration and have a drink together. Maybe with Georgian (sic!) wine, about which I am reading about currently.
And since we are talking about reading, if you don’t like to celebrate St. George, how about celebrating a great author?
Today is Shakespeare’s date of birth and death.
Usually I am careful with Shakespeare. Because – although unlikely – there is a slight chance, that someone is around, who actually read his works.
A toast to saints and great authors,
