Today is St. George’s Day, Patron Saint of England.

There are various histories about the legend of St George all of which seem to conflict each other but most say he was a warrior who refused to renounce his Christian faith.  He slayed the Dragon who was about to eat the King’s daughter and when the King showered him with wealth for saving her, St George gave it all away to the poor.  This apparently did not happen in England but Libya but we seem to have adopted him as our Patron Saint along with several other countries!!!!!  Anyway it makes a good story.

To be honest I have always been fascinated by dragon stories and loved the ones in the Harry Potter books.  I imagine the one St George killed looking like the one above from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire!!!  Who doesn’t love Toothless in How to Train your Dragon!!!!  Don’t we all want to be Mother of Dragons?!!!!!!

Anyway have a great Thursday all and stay safe.

Hugs & Love, Susie xx

    If you like dragons, you need to read the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffery. Love that series and I’ve read it numerous times! Happy St. George’s Day to you…slay the dragons in your life!
