The Sunday Service on BBC Radio 4 is a long established institution.
As St George's fell on a Sunday, it was necessary to mark the occasion.
Not wanting to be too English, they chose to celebrate all the four patron saints in a service held in Scotland dedicated to St. Andrew.

What is it about England?

What sort of name is "Bird Flu"?! If he/she spent less time dreaming up odd names, and more time actually studying cultures, he/she would know that Muslims celebrate St George as a hero just as much as Christians.

Oh, and BTW, under Christian rules you can't celebrate St George's Day on a Sunday, so the Church celebrates on Monday 24th this year - try to keep up...

Sold out in Asda - Nice to see they were sponsoring a petition to make St G's a public holiday though:-) Managed to get a growing 'patio' rose. One beautifuly bloomed deep red rose and two in bud. I will wear the bloomed one tomorrow and keep the rest alive for the rest of the year at least - Maybe till next? £2! As opposed to the £2.50 for a single stem. Funnily enough from the same shop:-)

There's a lot of confusion with George

He was reputed to be a Turkish soldier in the Roman army

He was martyred in similar circumstances to St Albans, but in the Holy land in the very early day of christianity & hence made an early Saint

The English connection is that during the Crusades near on 1000 years later his ghost was alleged to have turned up at a number of key battles - normally when the crusaders were losing - with his appearance - troops would rally & victory would result

So he was a sort of mascot of the Crusaders - hence the mix up with knights & thing - Richard the lionheart etc started it all

El Cid used the same trick in Spain with St James (Santiago) who turned up fighting the Moors after his dead body had somehow floated about the Mediteranean on a cruise

Dave, Shall I abide at thy right side on Monday 24th at SFC. I contacted StGeorg'r'us.com and they said it was OK to celebrate a day late providing you only drank a gallon (no more or less). I shall wear a St G's red rose so you can recognise me.

I will be carrying a copy of the Times and a Gibson J45 under my arm. Apparently St G used to play a Gibson J45 in preference to his Martin. He also sang sea songs and is famous for performing in a local street play. He had something to do with England too.

What a guy.

To Clarify i am Scottish and hold no grudges against any nation (apart from the english sports teams :P)
I agree with the point that it is a saints day and should (really) be a religious festival but i suppose the same thing can be said for Christmas and Easter etc.
But to come to my point.
Irish the same as any race have at some point been ruled and the bloodline tainted.
"In 1541, Henry went against the expressed wishes of the Pope and made himself the King of Ireland as well as England. This resulted in an increase in English immigration and settlement in Ireland."
The Norman Conquest
"At the beginning of May 1169, three single-masted longships beached at Bannow Bay, County Wexford. They had sailed from Milfordhaven in Wales, and on board were Normans, Welshmen and Flemings. Their leader was Robert FitzStephen, a Welsh warlord, and they made camp on Bannow Island, separated from the mainland by a narrow channel which has since silted up. A day later, two further ships arrived under the command of Maurice de Prendergast, bringing their numbers to around 600. They were soon joined by 500 Irish warriors led by Dermot MacMurrough, King of Leinster. A century had passed since the Battle of Hastings, when William the Conqueror had launched the Norman invasion and systematic colonisation of England. Now the Norman conquest of Ireland had begun"

So the point is that it is just nonsensical to claim that anywhere in the world that your race is pure.
P.S.
Happy St. George's day people :)

I wish that I could get to a St George's day gathering but I'm 3,000 miles away now and will be at NEFFA on the day. Guess I'll just have to brush up on the traditional English songs and try and get hold of a red rose to wear..

I've got my English flag on order and promised to arrive by the 23rd. It seems that another English woman ordered the English flag from the same place and got shirty when she was given the flag of St George. She expected to get the Union flag and argued the toss with the shop owner when she didn't. It took quite a while to get her to understand the difference, so I was told! And that was in California!

jacqui.c - English and happy with that.

I see our pure-bred Guest is spouting his racist rubbish again - just the sort of thing we want to avoid when celebrating St George. Let's not forget that St George, if he did exist, was a citizen of one of the most cosmopolitan civilisations known. He even exemplifies cross-fertilisation - in marrying the King of Egypt's daughter he introduced fresh blood into a dynasty well known for marrying its own siblings.

Dear
        
We are holding a Garden Party on the 23rd of April from 12pm- 3pm at the Hollybush Conservation Centre in Kirkstall. The event is a big open day run by Friends of Hollybush, which will promote the Hollybush wildlife garden and the activities at the centre. All are welcome, though we ask that children are accompanied by an adult.

We plan to have music, henna hand painting and folk dancing, as well as a willow sculpting activity in the garden. We will also provide space for other local groups to get involved, either by setting up a stall, or through music or arts and crafts. This will be a wonderful opportunity to promote your group or project. Alternatively you can send us promotional material that we will display for you on the day.
We will be in touch by phone, but directions are below along with a poster advertising the day. We really hope to see you there!

How to find us:
The bus routes are on the map. There is also Headingley train station five minutes up the road. From the station walk down the hill over the A65 (Abbey road) and you will be on Bridge road. Hollybush is just over the bridge.
Parking is available at Morrisons and BHS until 3.30pm.

Anonymous posters are gutless little prats. If you believe in something strongly enough to expend energy typing it, take the extra step of demonstrating that you stand by your own words. It's damned hard to take you seriously while you're cowering behind a bush.

Take a moment to savor this bit of tongue-in-cheek irony. Then either start using a signature so we can start telling you apart, or bog off.

Dear Guest 5th-"seperate"-poster- making-identical-punctuation-&-spelling-errors,by categorising "Fine Citizen" & "Islamic Brethren" seperately you create the logical inference that the latter are not be the former.
It is clear that conceptual thought is not your strong point so I will accept your implicit assertion that this is not what you intended to say.
Perhaps you might like to clarify what you did mean to say?
