St David’s Day 1 March

St David’s Day celebrates the patron saint of Wales on the 1st March each year. Welsh people celebrate by wearing the national emblem of Wales, either a daffodil or a leek.

St David’s date of birth is unknown but he lived around fifteen centuries ago. He became a monk at a young age and founded a monastery where St David’s Bishop Palace and Cathedral are now. St David’s Day was declared a national day of celebration in the 18th century. 

In addition to displaying the national symbols, Welsh people celebrate by eating national dishes such as cawl and Welsh cakes. There is also a national parade in Cardiff each year.
