Is it St George's day?


After informing over a dozen people on Twitter I've decided to write this post to put int fact, once and for all, that....

23rd April 2011 is NOT St George's Day!

When Saints Day land on Easter they defer to their Lord Jesus Christ and move themselves to the first Monday after Easter.

This means that this year, we will celebrate St George on Monday 2nd May 2011.

And if you don't believe me, here is proof from
Wikipedia (not that that's any guarantee, but get)
The sun newspaper

I would like more sources to show you, but it seems the media have let this pass them by, hint hint!

Oh and in case anyone wondered, it moves next year as well, to Monday 28th April 2011
