FREE Printables: St George’s Day Colouring Sheets

St George’s Day is on 23rd April each year, it is believed this he died on this day in 303 AD. St George is the patron saint of England and his cross is part of the Union Flag. He is celebrated throughout the world and there are many feast days devoted to him. It used to be a national holiday in England. These days it’s not celebrated as such, but flags with the St George’s cross are flown on some buildings.

St George is a heroic figure, and I’ve created some colouring printables for families and colouring enthusiasts to do to celebrate St George’s Day.

Here in England, we know St George as a brave knight who (may or may now have) stayed a dragon. Even though he is the patron saint of England, he wasn’t born here, he was born in what would now be Turkey. Saint George is also the patron saint of other countries including Venice, Portugal, Catalonia, Genoa and Ethiopia.

St George is considered to have a number of positive traits, and stories told to children about him always underline his bravery and courage, not to mention his devotion, piety, leadership, truthfulness and dedication to the cause. St George was said to be one of the heroes of the crusades, which is one of the reasons he’s known to be such a heroic character.

St George’s Day isn’t as well celebrated as St David, St Patrick or St Andrew, which is a bit of a shame. How will you be celebrating St George’s Day?

Last night England beat Denmark in a thrilling quarter final in the Euro 2020 tournament. My son is OBSESSED with the England team.  They seem like a great bunch of lads, and just the kind of role models my son and his friends need.

To celebrate the England team making it to the final (arise Sir Gareth Southgate), I’ve put together a couple of colouring sheets to keep my lad busy until the big game on Sunday.

I’ve made them free to download, so you can print them out too and get the kids to colour them in. Or you could colour them in yourself, no one is policing this!

World Photography Day 2013

Today is World Photography Day. I love photography and I want to get into it a bit more.

This is probably one of my favourite photographs which I’ve taken. It is of the North Devon Coastline looking towards Hartland Quay. If you look carefully you can make out Lundy Island on the horizon.

It’s such a peaceful spot. I love leaning against that gate and just contemplating life.
