At the feast of St. George

Well, would you believe that they actually had a party for George yesterday in Trafalgar Square!

Yup! He was waving the flag alright!IMG_6945 He posed for photos with a King – George IV IMG_6905 And he even did a camera trick – he kissed King George’s horse!IMG_6917May’s comment: After leaving The Globe Theatre, we stumbled upon The Feast of St. George at Trafalgar Square.  Of course we stopped to have a look …IMG_6940Just thinking … George does not have a birthday because he was a stray. We have a Gotcha Day which is 18 September – they reckoned he was about 18 months old. I think he’s actually younger. In any case, making St. George’s Day his “birthday” – seems to make sense, in terms of it being his saint as well as the supposed timing of his age.  So we will celebrate St. George’s Day with this in mind. Maybe he was meant to be called George after all.
