Traditions we honour and keep!

Traditions are important to me and mine, so we celebrate as much as we can of our own but also some other traditions that we have adopted as we are a family that has roots and friends in and from many different places around the world.

Happy St. George's Day !

Although it is not a big event or a national holiday, St George's Day is celebrated on 23rd April each year. It's a great excuse to enjoy or learn about some of England's customs and traditions, and also to think about knights and castles and dragons! It's also a good time to think about one of England's most famous men, William Shakespeare, who was not only born on 23rd April 1564 but also died on 23rd April 1616!
