Welsh Culture – St. David’s Day

Happy St David’s Day! St David’s Day is celebrated in Wales on March 1st, in honour of St David, the patron saint of Wales. St David was a Celtic monk, who spread Christianity across Wales in the sixth century. To mark the day, Welsh people wear daffodils and leek, the national emblems of Wales. St. David’s flag, a yellow cross on a black background and the national flag of Wales, depicting a fiery red dragon against a green and white background, are flown and the national anthem “Land Of My Fathers” is sung. St. David Day parades are held in Welsh towns and cities with locals wearing traditional Welsh clothes and performing traditional dances. Traditional Welsh food such as Welsh cakes, Bara Brith, Welsh cawl and Glamorgan sausages are enjoyed.
