Saint Georges Day – Dragons

Hi and welcome to the Jigthing’s blog.

They say romance is dead but this young man in the UK found a novel way to propose to his girlfriend.  I am sure if there were still dragons about, he would have slain one for her instead!

Saint George is best known in the Golden Legend for slaying a dragon to save Princess Sabra and then went on to slay all the dragons in Libya.

Below is a link to a Lego re-enactment of the “George and the Dragon” story – I hope you enjoy it. Lego was first developed in 1916 nearly 100 years ago in Denmark – I bet the founders never thought Lego would be animated all those years ago.

Happy jigging!
