St Patrick’s Day has been a bank holiday in N.Ireland for 100 years, and in 2006 St Andrews Day was made a bank holiday in Scotland. The Welsh Assembly agree that St Davids Day should be a bank holiday.
There is a danger that St George will be left out in the cold.
But why wait for the government to make it a bank holiday? We don’t need their permission to celebrate English culture and heritage. Book the day off work and celebrate. If we all take the day off it becomes a bank holiday by default.
Sign up to our campaign, www.stgeorgesholiday.com, and pledge to book the day off work. Who cares if you are the only one at work that does it… you’re English, you are used to being the odd one out and ahead of current thinking :)
