St George's Day falls on the 23 April, but walking around England you'd hardly notice.
Wales celebrates St David's Day, Scotland celebrates St Andrew, and Ireland has St Patrick.
But do any saints' days matter?
By not marking St George are we losing our heritage? Or is it silly to mark any of our different nationalities in this way?

It really bugs me that our country isn't more
patriotic - like you said, St Patrick's day, St David's
day and St Andrew's day are celebrated. It won't do
this country any harm to acknowledge that we are,
after all, English.

We should pay more attention to St George these days because we are forgetting who we are and turning into different people!

At my school there was a big assembly for St David's day but there was only a small one for St George's day and we dont even live in Wales! It is well out of order!

I don't mind, but everyone celebrates St Patrick's day, so why not celebrate St George's? The REAL reason that I love this day is because it's my birthday!

I'm Scottish and I don't think St. Andrew's cay is celebrated enough either. Burns Night and Tartan Day in America are celebrated more, and I think St. Andrew's day should be given more recognition.

We got today off school because it was St George's. I think we should make more of it, maybe fairs should be held to celebrate!

St George's day means nothing to me, I don't celebrate it because I don't really understand what it's all about!

I think celebrating saints' days does matter. It's a chance for the whole country to feel proud of their nationality. I am Welsh, so I don't care about St George's day but in Wales St David's day is celebrated and I really enjoy it. I think the English should celebrate St George's Day.
Everyone in England seems to celebrate St.Patrick's day even if they are not Irish! My city holds a big parade on St.Patrick's day but nothing is done for St.George's day! We should celebrate this day as it is our patron Saint and our heritage!

I think we should celebrate this day, it's important.
