St David's Day



March 1st is St Davids Day in Wales, a day to celebrate both Wales
and fabulous Welsh food and drink. St David's Day is a day in honour of
their patron saint, a Celtic monk who spread the word of Christianity
across Wales in the 6th century.




On the day, people wear either a daffodil or leek, two national
emblems of Wales. The leek is associated with St. David as it was seen
as healthy, virtuous, with healing qualities. It also acquired mystic
virtues with claims that girls who slept with a leek under their pillow
on St Davids Day would see their future husband in their dreams!
