A book as a present

Sant Jordi, Plaça Major of Banyoles (Catalonia)

On 23 April Catalonia celebrates Sant Jordi (Saint George), a day filled with books and roses.

Traditionally the man gives the woman a rose and she gives him a book. Nowadays things have changed and books and roses are given freely.

But it seems the girl of the photo preferred to hang on to the idea of presenting her lover with a book which she has just given him: the collection of poetry ‘The Sun and Her Flowers’ by Rupi Kaur. Will she get her rose?


    1. Yes, it is! The centre of the town was filled with book and flower stalls (not only here, but in all Catalonia’s cities). It was a very festive day with people smiling all around getting roses and books. Shortly I will post a photo of the girl on this picture puzzling if she would buy a book.
