Today’s is St. George’s Day!
There’s even a brand called George! And they even have cupcakes made in his honour!And this next photo is priceless – Mummy sneaked in this photo in the Central Hall at Westminster. No photos were allowed but she just had to take this one of St. George. It took Mummy a little while to give George a new name. He was called Bobo when he arrived. Mummy did not like that name too much and so for a while we called him He-Who-Has-No-Name – HWHNN for short!
It was a week after he came home that Mummy aptly named him “George” – on the day George Clooney was married and his namesake. Since then he has become quite the dapper lad.
As for me, my namesake is well-known amongst the romantics and the learned. And that’s all that matters.
May’s comment: Saint George is the patron saint of England and as such is celebrated annually on 23 April, the day of his death in 303 AD.
