Happy Birthday, William!
Today, April 23rd, is a triply important date.
Not only is it the day William Shakespeare died (in 1616), it is also reputedly the day he was born. (Why reputedly? Because in those days it was the custom to record the date of baptism — in Shakespeare’s case, April 26, 1564 — rather than the date of birth.)
That’s not all. Today is also St George’s Day. St George, as you may know, is (among other things) the patron saint of England.
If you’re a student or teacher or lover of English, there can’t be many dates more significant than this!
