  • Saint George’s day is always on the 23rd of April.
    • Saint George was a knight.
    • The legend says that he
    • killed a dragon, that
    • lived in a town called
    • Montblanc, in order to save
    • a princess.
    • He became the patron Saint
    • of Catalonia.
    • St. George's Day has been celebrated since 1436.
    • In Catalonia St. George's day coincides with the Fair
    • of the Book and the Rose.
    • On this day every man offers a rose to his loved one
    • (wife or fiancée), and in return she gives him a book.
    • The book is in memory of Cervantes.
    • This custom
    • was started in 1926,
    • to commemorate Cervantes
    • death (author
    • of "Don Quijote").
    • Pupils write poems and stories because we celebrate a
    • literary contest. The winners get a rose.
    • We also organise a book exchange.
    • People eat “Saint George’s bread”. It is a type of
    • bread made with “sobrassada”, which is a Mallorcan
    • spicy pork sausage that can be spread. The bread
    • looks like the Catalan flag.
