I just asked my flatmates that I'd remembered that it was St. George's Day, were they doing anything to celebrate? They told me 'No, we'd get told we were being racist.'
This stumped me a little. I'm Welsh and on Saint David's Day I wore my daffodil and Welsh Dragon necklace with pride and wished all my friends Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus (Happy St. David's Day), without fear or even thought of being called racist. How is having pride in your country racist?
When I put this to them however, one responded saying 'Yeah well Wales is such a small, rubbish country that everyone overdoes the pride. England don't have to because everyone knows we're the best country.'
I left the conversation confused and feeling a little bit sorry for English people who hold this attitude.
Celebrate your pride in your country! Happy Saint George's Day from a Welsh girl with a healthy amount of patriotism.
