Yorkshire, as all right-thinking people know, is known as ‘God’s Own County’ and quite right too. We’re lucky here at JAQUO because we have several Yorkshire writers. (As you would expect from a magazine of such quality).
This means that JAQUO has quite a few articles about God’s Own County – the people and the places, the history and the food – which you can see here in our Yorkshire section.
Yorkshire, in addition to being the best county in England, is also the largest and has a huge variety of scenery, places, cuisine, events — and people, of course. It also has its own special day.
When is Yorkshire Day?
Yorkshire Day is celebrated on August 1st and Yorkshire people all over the world will be wearing their white roses with pride and celebrating everything Yorkshire – and believe me, that’s a lot 🙂
“I, [name], being a resident of the [West/North/East] Riding of Yorkshire [or City of York] declare:
That Yorkshire is three Ridings and the City of York, with these Boundaries of 1140 years standing;
That the address of all places in these Ridings is Yorkshire;
That all persons born therein or resident therein and loyal to the Ridings are Yorkshiremen and women;
That any person or corporate body which deliberately ignores or denies the aforementioned shall forfeit all claim to Yorkshire status.
These declarations made this Yorkshire Day 2015. God Save the Queen!”
