Weekly Photo Challenge – Culture

Hmm. Culture.

I’m going to show you a photograph that I took very recently. I took it surreptitiously because I was a little taken aback by what I saw.

St George's day

It was taken earlier this week on St George’s Day. The English have never been particularly good at celebrating ‘their’ day, so this gathering at a local hostelry was really unexpected. Sorry about the quality, but as I said….. surreptitious was the order of the day.

  1. I like that you chose St George’s Day for this challenge. I live in Wales now, but I was born in England and lived there until I was 18. To this day, I don’t remember that it is St George’s Day until they announce it on the news. A couple of years ago, I was working in a supermarket in Tonypandy on St David’s Day. Everyone, adults and children, were dressed in traditional costume or rugby shirts and there were daffodils and leeks everywhere (along with the Welsh dragon of course). I commented to a colleague that I thought it was amazing that they all get involved in their saint’s day, and she replied ‘Don’t you do the same on St George’s Day in England?’. I smiled at the thought of us all turning up for school wearing knights and dragons costumes, and also felt a litlle sad that we never really celebrated it.
