From its offices in Sant Cugat, Catalonia, Spain, WDSF wishes the followers of this blog a "Happy St George's Day" ... Some of you may remember a similar post last year - also from Sant Cugat.
Here It Goes Again: Feliç Sant Jordi!
Hard to understand for those who have never experienced it, Saint George's Day is a popular festive day when book and rose stalls, and, above all, floods of people, take over the streets of all Catalan towns and villages. The celebration could not be simpler: the ritual consists of going for a walk and buying a rose, a book or both to give to loved ones, family members and friends. Although it is not a public holiday, the day and the essential walk fill the streets and squares, making it a unique national festival celebrated on a working day.
This time the Saint George's Day wish is extended with an original design of a rose by Lluís Puigbert, the designer of the WDSF logo!
