St. George's Day

Today, April 23, is the Memorial of St. George, soldier-martyr. He's one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers.

It's a perfect feast day for young boys who love knights, soldiers, swords, fighting dragons. Women for Faith and Family share an English way of celebrating this feast. Our Playmobil soldiers are getting an extra work-out today.

There's all sorts of ways to incorporate reminders at tonight's dinner about St. George -- dragons in various ways, spicy-hot foods, use of flames (flambe, grilling), skewers and toothpicks...

And since I was just speaking of coloring pages, St. George is a great one to add to the coloring book binder. There's a fabulous coloring page offered by CHC. There are many more listed in this 4Real thread.

Since St. George is the patron of England, I wish a happy feast day to Kathryn!
