St. George's Day

St. George's Day is celebrated in and around Catalonia and England today.
The tradition in Catalonia says that every man offers a rose to his love and in return every woman gives a book to her love. 
In fact, the book is in memory of Cervantes, "Don Quijote's" writer.
The English tradition is a little bit different. Although they celebrate the book day, the custom is to fly or adorn the flag of England

Another important tradition is the "Jocs Florals" in our school. 
Children wrote fantastic compositions for the writing competition and each winner had a rose and a book as a present. 
So, congratulations to all of them and also to all the students in the school because everybody wrote amazing stories and nice poems.

By the way, here you have a story that reminds me a famous one. Pay attention because this one is a little bit different. Enjoy it!
