Holidays & Days of Note for April 23, 2014
* St. George’s Day Patron Saint of England, Policemen & the Boy Scouts. Somehow the Patron Saint of England just doesn’t have the same ambiance as St. Patrick’s Day; however I’ve still got my “Don’t Kiss Me, I Disapprove of Public Displays of Affections” button ready.
* Lover’s Day (Catalonia) Yeah… I had to look up what it is too, it’s day for men to give women roses while women give men a book. No really.
* Nationalen Bier Tag “National Beer Day” (Germany) Riiiiight, wouldn’t it be easier to note when it’s NOT beer day in Germany? Ohhhh, it’s never not beer day in Germany, alright, and then the point of this day is what?
* Canada Book Day (Canada)
* World Book Day
* Vinalia urbana, (Ancient Rome) Yet another wine festival.
* World Laboratory Day (I don’t know, that country where all those mad scientists lived in the animated movie Igor?)
