April 23rd is St George's Day

St George's Day

The most famous legend is where George slays the dragon although there are many versions of this tale. A pagan town was terrorised by a dragon and demanded two sheep every day to eat. When there were no more sheep, the villagers started to offer young women to it. The young princess was offered to the dragon and when George heard about this he rode into the village, slayed the dragon and rescued the princess.
