St David’s Day



St David’s Day, celebrated on the 1st of March, is a significant cultural holiday in Wales, honouring Saint David, the patron saint of Wales. Across the country, this day is marked with a display of national pride and cultural heritage. People often wear traditional Welsh attire or sport daffodils and leeks, symbols associated with Saint David. The Welsh flag, featuring the iconic red dragon, is proudly flown in many homes and public buildings. Festivities include parades, choral performances, and traditional Welsh folk dances, showcasing Wales’ rich history and traditions. Schools and communities engage in special activities, embracing Welsh folklore, language, and music. St David’s Day is not just a celebration of a patron saint but a day for the Welsh people to express their identity and cultural unity, resonating deeply within Wales and wherever Welsh communities are found worldwide.
