23 d'Abril. Feliç Sant Jordi

23 d'Abril. Feliç Sant Jordi
Happy Saint George's Day.

Here, in Catalonia, Saint George's Day is also The Day of the Rose and the Book.
23th April it's a business day but festive day as well. The main event is the exchange of gifts between sweethearts, spouses and loved ones. Historically, men have given roses to women and women have given a book to men to celebrate the occasion. Nowadays, the mutual exchange of books between women and men is also usual.
In some sense it has similarities with Saint Valentine's Day but it has some unique twists that reflects the antiquity of the celebrations. It is our day of lovers.
Catalonia exported its tradition of the book and the rose to the rest of the world. In 1995, UNESCO adopted 23 April as World Book Day
