World Book Day 2010

Gibraltar took part in World Book Day yesterday.
It has been described as the biggest annual celebration of books and reading in the UK and Ireland, and of course Gibraltar!

World Book Day was designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. The origins of the day we now celebrate in the UK and Ireland come from Catalonia, where roses and books were given as gifts to loved ones on St. George’s Day – a tradition started over 80 years ago.
