It’s Yorkshire Day everyone! One day of the year where we can shamelessly shout from the rooftops how much pride we have for our beloved county!
We all know that Yorkshire is deserving of this dedicated day - but where did it come from?
The Origin of Yorkshire Day
On the 1st of August, way back in 1759, the Yorkshire regiment famously won in the Battle of Minden - a 7 year long war with France and Austria. As a homage to their county, soldiers wore wild roses as they defeated their opponents. This introduced an opportunity to show real appreciation for Yorkshire and now it opens up the doors for us to celebrate our great Yorkshireness in many ways, shapes and forms.
How will you be celebrating Yorkshire Day?
Wherever you may be on Sunday 1st August, you can pay homage to Yorkshire. Across the county there will be many celebrations taking place but that isn’t the sole way you can show your devotion to Yorkshire. Celebrate exactly how you’d like. Maybe meeting up with your fellow Yorkshiremen or cheersing to Yorkshire at home with your evening wine. Though no celebration is complete without a great big spread and if we can help you with anything, it’s that! Afterall, celebrations are just good reasons to eat lots of good stuff, right?
