St. Georges Day
Well, there's a celebration of St. Patricks day.
But for some reason there only rarely seems to be a St. Georges day celebration.

Anyone know when it it?

April 23rd. Which is a friday. So on Friday April 23rd, I feel the need to celebrate. Much like most fridays actually, but remembering that actually, us English _do_ have a patron saint.

What would you say the 'official' drink should be for celebrating this day though?

Personally I'd be inclined to go with beer, as that's a very traditional drink. (And has nothing to do with the fact that I happen to be rather partial to beer). I know tea is supposed to be very English, but don't forget, St. George dates back a little further than that.

I feel this celebration can be done well enough at the pub. Although the thought does occur that it's been a while since we last hosted a party...

Just remember the monetary drain of maelstrom.

But A party sounds cool.

National drink

I must admit, it's tempting to turn up to the pub and drink tea all night. You know, just to fit in with the English stereotype.
