St Geoorge's Day England and Rio de Janeiro

Remember that it is the feast of St George in England and of São Jorge in Rio de Janeiro on 23rd April. He is supposed to be buried in two different places and neither of them anywhere near England or Rio. However, he seems to be universally represented as portrayed in Benedetto Pistrucci's famous engraving.

  1. St George's Day is actually transferred to 2 May this year as it cannot be celebrated on Holy Saturday.
