Not being British myself, I have to admit that I never heard of St George’s Day, but what I don’t know, Google
knows. All British Casino doesn’t need much reason for a celebration, but a St George’s Day celebration throughout an entire weekend, that sounds like we’re talking about an important celebration here. Read more about St George’s Day and the three-day celebrations at All British Casino.
What is St George’s Day
Okay, it might feel like I’m telling Queen Elisabeth where to find Buckham Palace, but keep in mind that it’s not only the British looking for a way to spend some of their pennies at a British online casino.
Not so British myself, I needed a little bit of help from Google to find out what St. George’s Day is all about. Not a bad thing, though, as St George’s Day isn’t honoured as widely as those of other patron saints like St Patrick’s Day, for example. It’s, therefore, that very little is known about St George and his annual feast. It even seems that only one in five people in England actually know what day St George’s Day is on.
I’m sure you, as a patriotic British player, know that St George’s Day is a national day in England and falls on April 23rd, but do you also know St George wasn’t even English…
Representing traditional English chivalry and bravery, St George represents a true hero. But according to legend, St George was a Roman soldier of Greek origin and officer in the Guard of Roman emperor Diocletian. So St George wasn’t English and probably never set foot in the green and pleasant land.
Then, how is it possible that England ended up celebrating St George’s Day on the 23rd of April, a day when you are guaranteed to see English flags being waved proudly across the country? Apparently, St George became the patron saint of England, after he was made famous for slaying a dragon and saving a distressed maiden. The English sort of took him under their wing, making him the symbol of the nation, simply because of his bravery.
Although very little is known about St George, the legend tells that St George showed some true bravery in which he slew a dragon and saved a princess when he was a soldier in the Roman army. It was because of this bravery that in 1415, the English declared St George’s Day as a national feast day and holiday.
An important national day back then, it is nowadays that people continue to go to work and people only mark the day with a flag.
