Happy Sant Jordi!

Yes, it's Saint George's Day. In Catalonia it is Sant Jordi, where tradition demands that you give, and receive, a book and a flower, preferably a red rose. Sant Jordi, or Saint George, is also celebrated in Portugal, Cyprus, Greece, Georgia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Bosnia Herzegovina, and the Republic of Macedonia. Cities include Moscow, Genova, Ljubljana, Beirut, Qormi and Victoria (Malta) and many others. It is also celebrated in the old kingdoms and counties of the Crown of Aragon in Spain—Aragon, Catalonia and Valencia.
