Saturday is St. George`s Day, St. George being England`s national saint.

Sunday is Easter, when Christians celebrate the Resurrection.

Monday is always a Bank Holiday.

This year, on Friday there is an event which has captured the imagination of people across the world, as Prince William marries Kate Middleton.
