Is this a cool holiday or what

So yesterday was St. Jordi's Day (St. George) here in Barcelona --  celebrated by giving books and flowers to your loved ones ....everybody's out and about with book stands and roses for sale on every corner.  It was a lovely late spring evening  and the streets were heaving with people looking at and buying books and flowers and having generally great time. Romance in the air for the lucky ones (sigh)
A holiday I can totally get behind (and way more romantic then Valentines day.. )
