Holidays and Celebrations:

Porte Musings:

The day after Earth Day is World Book Day. So grab a book and celebrate.

You could read about Saint George slaying the dragon and celebrate Saint George’s Day at the same time. Often celebrated at a local pub with a good pint of ale we’ll just have to improvise during COVID-19 restrictions.

You could celebrate William’s birthday or Talk Like Shakespeare Day. Or you could just watch a good a Shakespearean Play.

Cease the day. Slay your dragons. And read a good book. ❤

Shakespeare was a dramatist of note
who lived by writing things to quote.

Civic/Provincial Day

International Beer Day

Strange having a holiday during the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Although most of Ontario is now in stage 3 of restrictions, not much has changed.  People are permitted to dine in at restaurants, but we’re so used to take out we’re still choosing to stay home to eat.

The beaches are full as everyone is trying to enjoy some of what’s left of summer.  Unfortunately, too full and many have had to close due to capacity issues.

We know what we are, but know not what we may be.

World Book Day

St. George’s Day

Since we’re still self isolating and social isolation continues we should all read a good book to celebrate World Book Day.

St. George slayed the dragon, saved the princess and permitted all the townsfolk to have access to water.  Sounds like a Mario game to me.  Celebrations will be much calmer in England and Ireland this year due to COVID-19, but I’m certain most people will be toasting St. George with more than a glass of water.
