May the 4th is the Eve of St. George's Day in Bram Stoker's Book 'Dracula'?!

I just about spat out my coffee when listening to chapter 1 of the free audio book of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' and hearing that, "evil things are said to occur on St. George's Eve, beginning at midnight." 
"The date of St. George's Day presented in the book, 5 May (on the Western Gregorian calendar), is St. George's Day as observed by the Eastern Orthodox churches of that era. The belief is that moroi (living vampires), witches, and other dark creatures must gather all the evil power they can between midnight and the dawn of the saint's holy day, so it is unsafe to go outside on that night."
(Excerpt from Dracula, 1897) "Do you know what day it is?" I answered that it was the fourth of May. She shook her head as she said again: "Oh, yes! I know that, I know that! but do you know what day it is?" On my saying that I did not understand, she went on: "It is the eve of St. George's Day. Do you not know that tonight, when the clock strikes midnight, all the evil things in the world will have full sway?
St. George Lucas?-)
St. George McFly?-)
Robert Zemeckis and George Lucas were both born on May 14th?!
