Sant Jordi, patrón de Catalunya, día de rosas y libros que se regalan a las personas queridas.

Fiesta de Sant Jordi el 23 de Abril. Tradición de regalar una rosa y un libro

Historically, men gave women roses, and women gave men a book to celebrate the occasion—”a rose for love and a book forever.” In modern times, the mutual exchange of books is also customary. Roses have been associated with this day since medieval times, but the giving of books is a more recent tradition originating in 1923, when a bookseller started to promote the holiday as a way to commemorate the death of William Shakespeare on 23 April 1616.
