Apparently, being English and too reserved/ cynical we don't celebrate our saint's day enough. Could this be because we have some difficulty associating with our saint (apparently a Roman soldier) and the fact that he is shared with so many other countries (Ethiopia, Greece, Georgia, Palestine etc). Or the fact that as a dragon slayer he has no real sense of purpose for us any more (the dragons have all gone or are living in a commune in Snowdonia).
Therefore I propose that we reinvent St Georges day and attempt to Anglicise our saint with a more personable and representative figure. Here are a few ideas:
George (without Mildred - dragon slayed??)
George Harrison - Noble knight with saintly hairdo (one of 4 apostles)
George Formby - English minstrel
For me - George Cole probably tips it - English gentleman and merchant. Honest, upright, earnest and purveyor of nice watches.
