Sant Jordi

La Diada de Sant Jordi, or St. George’s Day, is one of Barcelona’s biggest holidays. Celebrated on April 23rd the Day of St. George–also popularly known to the world as “The Spanish Valentine’s Day“- is a festival marked by the giving and receiving of roses and books. In Catalonia it is traditional for men to give women flowers and women to give men books. Roses have a deep historical presence, but books have taken on a very traditional sense as well since their introduction into the festival in the early 1920s, when a clever bookseller promoted April 23 as the day that literary giants Shakespeare and Cervantes died.
