  1. Despite the fact that St. George has been the patron saint of England since the 14th century, only one in five people know that St. George’s Day falls on 23 April.
    More than a quarter of people living in England do not even know who their patron saint is!
    William Shakespeare wrote 154 sonnets, and 37 plays!
