St. George’s Day

St. Georges Day English flag project for childmindersSt. George is the patron saint of England and we celebrate St. George’s Day on the 23rd April. Although it is not a big event or a national holiday, on St. George’s Day many pubs and other buildings will fly the St. George’s Cross flag. St. George is most famous for the story in which he rescues the princess from the dragon. For childminders it is a great excuse to learn about some of England’s customs and traditions, and also to do activities involving knights, princesses and dragons!
