Good morning and happy Saint George's day. I only know it is our national saints day because google told me so. I always think it is strange that it is not a day of celebration like St Patrick's day. Are there any traditional foods associate with today? None that I know of, there is no st georges cake or pudding to my knowledge, no parties or get togethers it is just another day. It is not even a bank holiday. We must be one of the very few nations not to celebrate our national day. Is it just our typical understated attitude? Perhaps we should start something!!! Suggestions for a celebratory feast how about: - roast beef and yorkshire pudding followed by rhubarb crumble and custard you can't get more English than that. We could celebrate our island nation with fish and chips and mushy peas.
Any ideas? No I am not taking up morris dancing!!!!
That said it is a pretty dull day here still very chilly in single figures. We had a splash of rain yesterday but nowhere near enough to do any real good.
Anyway have a good day all summer is coming but don't hold your breath!!!!
