Today April 23rd, is St. George’s Day and the residents of Catalonia celebrate this day in a very special way. Since 1926, the people of Catalonia celebrate the legend of a young hero who killed a dragon and saved a princess from its clutches, and from the blood came out a beautiful red rose.
Since then, it has become a traditional and soulful party where lovers exchange gifts such as roses and books. Many men traditionally present his loved one (wife or fiancée) with a single rose wrapped with a sprig of wheat and a red and yellow striped ribbon. In return, she gives him a book.
Why a red rose wrapped with a sprig of wheat? According to tradition, the rose symbolizes the exclusiveness of love from love, the color red symbolizes passion and sprig of wheat symbolizes fertility.
On this day, roses and books flood the four provinces of Catalonia and all Catalans go out to celebrate this emotion-filled day. If you have the opportunity to travel to Spain, we recommend doing so around April 23rd in any town in this region. It is a magical and very special day for lovers!
