Cry God for Harry.England and Saint George.

Now that Saint 'my Grandmothers neighbour drank guinness,so therfore I must celebrate it' Patricks day is over,the question of should the English celebrate St.Georges day has arisen again.

Should it be watching Morris dancers on the village green,whilst drinking a warm pint of ale,then afterwards listen to Stephen Fry read excerts of our best wordsmiths Chaucer,Shakespeare And Dickens?

Or could it be a drunken rampage through the city centers of Engerland,innit.

I prefer the way we do it now ,in that most English of ways and do nothing,in a confident manner.

It seems a little naff and insecure to want to venerate a National Saint - typically by getting shitfaced. The English demonstrate that they are above such trivia by basically ignoring theirs...

Hmm. As George was a Palestinian with a Turkish father, you could gather at the nearest synagogue and pelt it with rocks before heading off for a kebab?

Just had a thought, "Harry" was Welsh, "I wear it for memorable honour. For I am Welsh, you know good counrtyman" Henry V SceneVII verse 192

It would depend on what they were doing on the village green. If they were gang raping a local infants school teacher then I would watch but if they were 'dancing' then sorry but it's time to bugger off elsewhere.

I'm fairly sure that Muslims and other non-christians don't actually have patron saints...

I was under the impression, the patron saint of Ireland is St Bernard. In fact when I lived in NI, there were shops selling virtually nothing else, other than products with a St Bernard label.

I see your point but, St George is patron saint of England there fore patron St to all English people whatever religion they might be. It's their choice not to believe is it not :)
