Thursday 5th March

World Book Day, an annual event, is the biggest celebration of books and reading in the UK and Ireland. The origins come from Catalonia, where roses and books were given as gifts to loved ones on St. George’s Day – a tradition started over eighty years ago. World Book Day was designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over one hundred countries around the globe.
