Many Christian countries, regions, and cities have St. George as their patron saint, so today is a day of celebration for many of them. Were I lucky enough to be in Barcelona, my favorite spot in the world, right now, I would be enjoying the “Day of the Book”, which I talked about in this guest post I did for author and speaker Dawn Eden on her website this time last year. And I could wander all over the city admiring the many images of St. George and the Dragon, as I showed in this photo essay from a couple of years ago.
