Google Doodle Celebrates April 23 St. George’s Day 2022

St George's feast day has been celebrated in England for hundreds of years, and 23 April is possibly the date of his martyrdom.

St George’s feast day has been celebrated in England for hundreds of years, and 23 April is possibly the date of his martyrdom.

Today’s Doodle celebrates England’s old tale of the legend of St. George. Shrouded in mystery, legend has it that St. George slew a fire-breathing dragon to save the townspeople of Silene from demise.

Although the real St. George was born in present-day Turkey, and likely never set foot in England, 11th-century crusaders popularized St. George upon returning to England—sharing the story of a galiant hero who single-handedly rescued not only a princess but an entire city under siege!

Annual modern-day St. George’s Day celebrations vary, from reenactments of heroic knight slaying, to pinning a single red rose to one’s lapel. Why the red rose? Legend has it that rose bushes grew throughout Silene after St. George vanquished the dragon.

Happy St. George’s Day to all!
