St. Crispin's Day

The St. Crispin's Day Speech is a famous motivational speech from the Shakespeare's Henry V, delivered by Henry before the battle (act IV scene iii). It is so called because 25 October is the feast day of Saints Crispin and Crispinian. The speech itself names the day Crispin Crispian, in the passage:

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
