St George’s Day Activities

We love learning about history and also our heritage. We are from the UK, and only in the last 3 years have we moved to America. However, I have never talked to Freddie about St George so I thought now would be a perfect time.

Last month we learned about St David’s Day the Patron St of Wales, and St Patricks Day, so it is only fitting we learn about the patron of the country we are from too.

St George’s Day Facts

For those of you who don’t know who St George is I wanted to put together a few key facts.

  • St George is the patron saint of England, Venice, Genoa, Portugal, Ethiopia, and Catalonia among others.
  • He was not born in England, in modern-day Turkey, and died in modern-day Israel in 303AD.
  • St George didn’t even visit England!
  • The St George cross was not used to represent England until much later.
  • Of course, George didn’t really slay a dragon as the story is told! In fact, that was added centuries later.
