    October 25: Sts. Crispin and Crispians' Day

    October 25 is the Feast Day of Saints Crispin and Crispian, twin brothers said to have been martyred for their belief. They were said to be leather workers; they are the patron saints of that craft.

    The day is remembered more for the play by Shakespeare, Henry V, which contains one of the most famous declamations in all literature.

    The speech is given before the Battle of Agincourt, 1415, where Henry's force of less than 200 men crushed the French force numbering in the thousands, affecting the course of European history for centuries:

    This day is call'd the feast of Crispian.
    He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
    Will stand a tip-toe when this day is named,
    And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
    [Portion deleted]
    Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
    This story shall the good man teach his son;
    And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remembered-
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
    This day shall gentle his condition:
    And gentlemen in England now a-bed
    Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."

    The newly "invented" long-bow, which owes its effectiveness to the unique characteristics the English Yew, was a decisive factor in the battle.

    For historians this day also marks The Charge of the Light Brigade - for which the speech seems ironically fitting - and the Battle of Leyte Gulf, one of the critical naval battles of the WWII Pacific Theater.

    From time to time it is helpful to recall these things.

    I learned of this speech from my very excellent high school Senior English teacher (RIP). The most famous reading probably is the Olivier version. It was filmed during WWII and served as a (good) propaganda film to encourage the British, whose future was still in doubt. However, I happen to like the more current version - maybe because of the music. Kenneth Branagh isn't exactly chopped liver either:

    If this doesn't stir your emotions, you'd better check your pulse - whether or not you have one!

    Should we celebrate Sts. Crispin and Crispians' day by eating potato chips?

    The unexpurgated passage:

    This day is call'd the feast of Crispian.
    He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
    Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam'd,
    And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
    He that shall live this day, and see old age,
    Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
    And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian.'
    Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
    And say 'These wounds I had on Crispian's day.'
    Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
    But he'll remember, with advantages,
    What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
    Familiar in his mouth as household words-
    Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
    Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
    Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
    This story shall the good man teach his son;
    And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remembered-
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
    This day shall gentle his condition;
    And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
    Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
    There are TWO kinds of people in the world -- the kind who believe there are two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
