Thread Name: What songs for St. George's Day?
Subject: RE: What songs for St. George's Day?
"Oh where is St George Oh where is he now"..The Padstow May Song. Which explains in a nutshell why the English dont really celebrate St Georges Day. All the frolicking this time of year was cocentrated on May Eve/May Day activity which is only a week later.If you're going for full-on outdoor activities (one of which at least is even more fun than morris dancing) you're going to go for Mayday. hence thetraditional songs for May mention St George, it's the closest you're going to get.
