St George's Day: Why don't we celebrate it the same way as St Patrick's Day? | Cambridge News via…
sickens me that all the plastic Irish come out in force on St Patrick's but cannot make the same effort for their own St George.
Hope all you English bellends who became plastic paddys on St Patrick's day are getting ready for St George's day tomorrow?

Why do the British celebrate St Patrick's Day? You can bet your bottom dollar the Irish don't celebrate St George's.
I'll wear green on St Patrick's Day when you wear a dragon head on St George's Day. Or ride a griffin on St David's Day.
Let's test your general knowledge. The crosses of St George, St Patrick, and St Andrew make up which flag?
Unfortunately I only see THREE flags- St George, St Andrew and St Patrick. It will NEVER be my flag until part of MY flag is part of it. Then and ONLY them will I stand for a flag that does NOT stand for me..!
Jack Hrusoff Vexologists are flag people: I happened to have studied. In ancient Rome there were standards and banners. Later, crosses were adopted by European countries; e.g., Britain is a combination, via Scottish king James, of the red cross of St George on white ground with white X, or saltire, of St Andrew (in night sky) on field of blue, red X of St Patrick of Ireland later added to form Union, 'Jack' being of uncertain origin, not merely jacksprit flag of vessels. American flag, a naval ensign, was taken from East India Company flag, purportedly as stolen from lower casks in vessels of Eleanor, Beaver and Dartmouth docked at Boston during Tea Party. Grand Union was later used as a device worn on our first vessels (Esek Hopkins and reckless John Paul Jones mercenary) to gain port and avoid detection into St Eustis to gain saltpeter for gunpowder. Japanese flag, rising sun, was an adaption of Shogun samurai motif used in WWII, sans rays, and later worn today like maple leaf of Canada. 14 minutes ago ...
When it's St Patrick's day, everyone knows, yet people barely have a clue about St George's the Patron Saint of ENGLAND
Why do people celebrate more for St Patrick's day than St George's day in england
We all celebrate St Patrick's Day So come down this weekend and join in the fun for St George's Day!
I've been thinking abt these saints. St Patrick must of been such a great guy because St George killed a dragon what more does he have to do
If you were in the St Patrick's Day Shotgun, you're automatically in the St George's Shotgun on 27th April. We have space for a few more..
Why do Americans make a big thing of St Patrick's Day? More so, I suspect, than the Irish. And the English don't give a stuff for St George.
Is it bad that I know when St Patrick's day is but not St Andrew (country of birth) or St George (country of residence) or St David? :/
The English don't celebrate St David's or St Andrew's (and rarely celebrate St George's), so why is St Patrick's accepted as universal?
JUST A THOUGHT would the cross of St Andrew have to be removed from the UJ after their independance so the UJ flag would no longer have any blue in it - just the white and red crosses of St George and St Patrick. And the aussies, kiwis etc would also have to amend the UJs in their flags accordingly. Has anyone else thought about this?
1) There are about twenty modern nations whose currency is called the "dollar." The word apparently derives from "taler," which in turn comes from "Joachimsthal," the name of a place in Bohemia where the taler (a silver coin) was created, with the "-thal" part presumably meaning "valley." (The modern German spelling, by the way, has been changed to "tal," which explains the new spelling of the English word "Neandertal.") So, we use dollars today because certain coins were once minted in a valley. 2) The flag of Britain, commonly known as the Union Jack (which derives from the use of the Union Flag on the jack-staff of naval vessels), embodies the emblems of three countries under one Sovereign. The emblems that appear on the Union Flag are the crosses of three Patron Saints: The red cross of St George, for England, on a white ground; The white diagonal cross, or saltire, of St Andrew, for Scotland on a blue ground; The red diagonal cross of St Patrick, for Ireland, on a white ground. 3) Wales is not repres ...
FACTS ABOUT THE Union Jack. Wales is not represented on the Union Jack. That fact is beyond dispute. As such, the extent to which it was flaunted by department stores, shops, pubs, households and other organizations in Llanelli (and Wales generally) during the 2012 Jubilee Jamboree, the Olympics and the Paralympics was truly amazing. For the record, the Union Flag is made up solely of the Crosses of St George of England, St Andrew of Scotland and St Patrick of Ireland. The Cross of St David of Wales – that beautiful gold cross on a black background – is nowhere to be seen on it. Neither is the Red Dragon of Wales. Therefore, the actual composition of the Union Jack simply does not match what it is meant to represent – the United Kingdom. The Cross of St Patrick represents Ireland - the whole of Ireland – so that the Republic of Ireland is still represented on it even though it became independent of the UK in 1922, which means that the flag is 90years out-of-date! However, Wales – which i ...
My son asked me why his brothers were called George and Patrick. I said, "they were born on St George's Day and St Patrick's Day, have you got a problem with that, Pancake ?"
Same on St Patrick's Day, everyone goes nuts for it yet don't even know the date of St George's Day
We can't have a bank hol for St David's. It'd mean another for St George's, then St Patrick and St Andrew. Too many!
For those that don't know, St George is the Patron Saint of England. Every year we celebrate our Englishness like the Irish celebrate St Patrick's Day etc. However the numbskulls in the UAF don't like
