#AB_presents La Diada de Sant Jordi a Catalunya The holiday is celebrated with the exchange of roses and books between sweethearts, loved ones and colleagues. Historically, men gave women roses and women gave men a book to celebrate the occasion – "a rose for love and a book forever" Giving books is a tradition originating in 1923, when Catalonian booksellers started to promote the holiday as a way to commemorate the nearly simultaneous deaths of Miguel Cervantes and William Shakespeare on 23 April 1616.
The UNESCO World Book Day , celebrated on 23 April, has origins in this Catalonian celebration.
