It’s that time again…

Today is Sant Jordi, the day that all Catalan boys give a rose to their girlfriend and receive a book in return.

Already this morning I could see some people selling roses at the traffic lights, so for sure I won’t have any problems getting a rose.

Maria José does not know this yet, but I also bought a book for her. To me it is not so fair that the boys are ready for €4, while the girls have to spend at least four times that amount.

I read on the Gencat site that Sant Jordi has been celebrated since the year 1456!
