Please do not slay any dragons, there are hardly any left. A much maligned and misunderstood creature. Ann you should be ashamed of yourself.

St George is considered by Bulgarians as their protector and his day (Гергьовден) is celebrated on May 6th here (as well as in many other countries in eastern Europe).

Although the English may appear to lay claim to St George as their (patron) saint, he is actually a patron saint of at least nine other countries, as well as many towns, social groups, professions and disease (including syphilis) sufferers. Interestingly, he is celebrated by Moslems and Christians alike.

St George's Day

Postby Dreanas » Mon May 04, 2009 11:58 am

Happy St George's Day - "Gergyovden" - to everyone in Bulgaria on 6 May.

""" St. George was a Roman officer during the rule of Emperor Diocletian (284-305), who became one of the martyrs for Christianity. He was tortured and then beheaded (on April 23, 306) because of his refusal to renounce his Christian faith.

The holy martyr St. George the Victor has been considered one of the most important Saints ever since Christianity became the official state religion in Bulgaria in the 9th century.

In Bulgaria St. George is the patron of spring verdure and fertility, and of shepherds and farmers. His Day, May 6, is believed to set in summer and the new farming cycle. ....""
