“A Rose for Love and a Book Forever”
Yesterday was one of the most celebrated holidays in Catalunya, La Diada de Sant Jordi. For those who are not familiar with Sant Jordi’s Day (St. George’s Day), it is a widely celebrated holiday that commemorates the death of Saint George in 303 AD. Traditionally, in the Catalunya region of Spain, Sant Jordi’s day is celebrated by an exchange of gifts between sweethearts, friends and colleagues. Men give roses to women and women give books to their special men.
Since Sant Jordi’s day is our favorite holiday, we gave roses to all of our female guests at each of our hostels in Barcelona. Sorry guys, no books for you. But, hopefully you found a special someone to take care of you on this special day.
Happy Sant Jordi’s Day!!!!
