      Saint George raised his sword and stabbed the dragon, at last releasing the princess and the citizens from this turmoil. From the dragon's blood a rose-bush grew with the reddest roses that had ever been seen. Saint George, now a hero picked a rose and offered it to the princess. Saint George stands out among other saints and legends because he is known and revered by both Muslims and Christians. It is said Saint George killed the dragon near the sea in Beirut, thus Saint George bay was named in his honor. Saint George's feast day is celebrated on Ap but if it falls before Easter, it is celebrated Easter Monday.

      Today is the Feast Day of St. George, patron of seemingly innumerable places, people, and professions. But his most storied legacy seems to be that of "dragon slayer." Jared Zimmerer takes a look at the legend of St. George, and finds why the lore of this mighty deed has been such a lasting one.
