Sant Jordi

Sant Jordi, on 23th April, is one of the most important days in Barcelona (and all Catalonia) and it  is based in Saint George legend. 

That day I was in Barcelona with two chinese friends, who enjooyed the festivity for first time. 

We took a  lot of photos like this:

The day is also called "the day of the rose and the book", for this reason, the tradition consist in: 
- boys give roses to girls (the color of the rose doesn't matter, annd now there are many types)
- girls give books to the boys

But some people receive both :) 
My sister bought a book for me and my friends gave me a multicolor rose! (Like the first photo)

I was very happy ^^ Moreover we could see a lot of celebrities signing his books.
