Celebrating Sussex Day by showing my martlets flag.
@Luke Later you take your banners to the knights tournament, held at the main square, against other counties 😆
@ghostdancer ooh that would be exciting!
@Luke I'd go without a doubt. In Siena they have the horse race, you should have a knights tournament.
@ghostdancer We could challenge Kent, Surrey, Hampshire (our neighbours) to joust! I'd be there for sure.
@silkevicious sadly flying a flag is as exciting as it gets. In the UK we really need to celebrate local days like the Spanish celebrate their local fiestas. That is with music and lots of alcohol!
@silkevicious This is what we need in England! A good excuse for a party 😁
@silkevicious ah! That made me look up who is the patron saint for Sussex. It is Richard of Chichester and today is his saint's day! Explains why it is Sussex Day.
but you know who'd turn up.
@ghostdancer @basil @silkevicious The Bonfires for St John in Alicante (Which would be next week) are amazing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonfires_of_Saint_John#Celebration_in_Alicante
I am hoping to go to this, either this year or next.
@scribe Superb! Never heard that version before. Rumour has it Buster Bloodvessel of Bad Manners runs a pub in Portslade these days.
