Saint George's Day is celebrated on April 23, the anniversary of his death. The patron saint of England was though tot be a knight who slew a dragon and saved a princess. However, historical records indicate that George was not English, was not a knight, and most likely never visited England.
There wasn't a dragon either.
Still, George was a martyr, and became the patron of many things - including soldiers, farmers, and sufferers of the plague.
