St George's Day in London

St George's Day in London, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

St George came from the Holy Land and was brought back to England by the Crusaders.

A month ago, they were celebrating the well established St Patrick's Day at Leadenhall Market and today it was St George's turn. Not a bad turn-out. Give it twenty years and I think they will make it a national holiday. Global warming will have ensured that we get good weather for the day, just like it was today.

I was living in London on St. George's Day in 1993, but I don't remember that people wore red roses. Is St. George's Day much observed, or is it perhaps a rather forgotten day?
