A very merry St George’s Day to you!

It’s that day of the year when people all over the world wildly celebrate the festivities associated with the patron saint of England, St George, alongside the English. Errrmmm… or is it that date that we never quite remember?

There’s a website here that promotes St George’s Day. You can vote whether St George’s Day should be a national holiday: choose from Yes, No, or (to accommodate my parents) “maybe – I can’t seem to make my mind up”!

Over 700,000 have voted to date, the overwhelming majority of whom do vote for a day off. Rather worryingly, around 40,000 have voted “no” or “maybe”. I can only assume those voters aren’t based in the UK? Which fool wouldn’t vote for a day off?
