Lover's day in Catalunya

Here in Catalunya, a north-eastern region of Spain, the "lover's day" isn't the 14 of february, but the 23 of april, Saint George (sant jordi, in catalan). I should have written this post on thursday..but I wrote the "my creative space" instead..
He is the patron of the region, and it is tradition to give a present to the loved one, a red rose for women and a book for men.  
The center of Barcelona is filled up with books and writers who sign them and rose sellers, but I prefer to buy it days before, with no crowd around, especially now, with a small daughter..
