Happy St George's Day 2010

Happy St George’s Day!! Today we celebrate all things English and Virtually London (lite) is flying the flag in our virtual shops in Kensington and Tropical Harmony. The English flag of St George was adopted by Richard the Lion Heart in the 12th Century. St George, who was born in Turkey, was a Roman soldier who bravely protested about the Roman’s torture of Christians. He was imprisoned and tortured, but kept his faith, he died for his cause and was beheaded at Lyda in Palestine. Celebrate the English way, with a pint in the Union Jack pub tonight, so get your red and white costumes on and head over for a great night.

Thanks Janey for reminding us of the story of St George which illustrates those values of discipline and bravery, tolerence and fairness, service and duty, which were thought as typically English (Btitish)and admired by the rest of world. Hope you have a great St George's day.
