09:23 pm: apparently today is the feast day of some roman catholic saint from palestine, who certainly never killed a dragon.

It is also the International Day of the Book, and Shakespeare's traditional birthday (he would have been 441 today).

i was thinking how if we wanted a national day, Bede's day (he died may 25) would be much better.

My personal choice would be St. Cuthbert, but that might have a lot to do with me wanting to spend the day drinking Newcastle Brown Ale and singing traditional north-eastern songs.

I suppose I could do that anyways though, I went to one of his schools.

Didn't he used to be patron saint? I thought St George got the job in the 14th century because some king (possibly Edward III but I couldn't swear to it) wanted somebody who had the image if a butt-kicking warrior.
