St. George's Day

 

 

23rd April is St. Georges Day. St. George is the Patron Saint of England however he wasn't English. It is believed  he was born in Cappadocia  ( now Turkey) around the year 280 AD. Legend has it that there lived a dragon in the bay of Beirut (near the town of Silene) which terrorised the local population.

 

The king's daughter was finally chosen as a sacrifice to the dragon at which point St. George rode up on his white steed, dismounted and fought the dragon on foot. He finally dragged the dragon to the town, using the princesses girdle, and slayed it in front of all the towns people.
