Diada de Sant Jordi – St.George’s day

Feliç Diada de Sant Jordi!
¡Feliz día de San Jorge!

The legend of St George.

Today is  St George! We all know the story of the knight St George fighting against the dragon to save the Princess.  He killed the beast and from its blood grew a rose that he gave to her.

In Catalonia we celebrate this day in a special way. Men use to give a rose to a woman they love (wife, mother, daughter, sister…) and women return this gift by giving a book to their lover.
