Saint George’s Day
Saint George is the patron saint of England, Georgia [the country], Bulgaria, Portugal, Catalonia, and the city of Moscow. Orthodox countries tend to celebrate George on November 23rd.

It is UNESCO’s International Day of the Book.
It is also the birth and death day of Billy the Bard, who was a great writer in desperate need of a spelling checker.
Master Shakespeare gave all of the best lines to villains supplying low humor to those who have read the Folio, e.g. Arlen Specter quoting Iago, reputedly in support of Clarence Thomas.
