St George's Day

He's the patron saint of England. April 23rd is the closest England gets to a National Day so here goes with some commemoration.

I read here that The English share St George with several other places, including Georgia (no surprises there), Lithuania, Germany and Palestine.

I hope to indulge in some roast beef and Yorkshire pudding before the day is out.

More likely fish and chips and mushy peas... but at least you'll get to hear the Royal Marines!

Well, steak and kidney pie and chips, cottage pie, and sausage and mash is pretty English.

Ouch, my arteries.

Chip butties with HP sauce, anyone?

You forgot Portugal, England's (and thus the UK's) oldest ally, since 1373. Also producer of a very fine and extremely "special" beverage.
