Quizás porque en la calle se darán muestras continuas de amor y cultura, dos de los motores que debería mover el mundo.
Quizás porqué flota en aire la leyenda de Sant Jordi y aunque sólo por un día volvemos a creer en princesas y dragones y valerosos cabelleros al rescate.
Today is a special day! One can feel it in the air when gets up.
Maybe is because of the rumor in the morning of the booksellers while they're mounting the stands of books which are going to flood the whole city.
Maybe is because the air filtering through the petals of the more than 7 millions of roses that are going to be sold today.
Maybe is because of the beating hearts of the lovers and their exchange of roses and books.
Maybe is because of the sound of the word CONGRATULATIONS for all the Jordis and Jordines.
Maybe is the impatience of some books on their shelves because they know that today is their great day and that at last they are going to be sold, given and read.
Maybe is because of the sound of steps of worldwide writers coming to Barcelona to sign books and to share this day with their readers.
Maybe is because for one day only one can find love and culture on every corner. Two of the forces that should move the world.
Maybe because the legend of Sant Jordi is floating in the air and we believe again in dragons and princesses rescued by brave knights.
Maybe is because it's a working day but it looks like a holiday.
Yes, today is a special day…
Maybe because today is Sant Jordi.
