    Hey I spoke to my son who as you may know is out at Uni in Barcelona, he says that they celebrate St Georges day out there.
    The tradition being, males buy the females a red rose and the females buy the boys a book of poetry. ummm!
    Well seems more than we do here. sounds better than fighting dragons..... OR does it???

    Yes it does, although i've been out with a few dragons in my time i've never had to fight them - thank god!! :oops:

    Nothing "official" seems to be done to celebrate St Georges day in England, especially not London!! We all pay enough in taxes, so they should at least put on a parade or something!!

    Just a simple question from the ignorant side of the pond ;), but do the Scots celebrate St. Andrew's Day? Is there even such a thing?

    As a 'New Scot', I'm a bit curious. ;)

    I recently became a member of the supporters for the new Airspace display that under construction at Duxford if you subscribe with a regular donation they give you a bit of bumph and a tie pin some concessions
