St. Davids Day

St. David's Day - Wednesday, 1st March 2024
St Davids Day (also known as the Feast of Saint David or Dydd Gyl Dewi Sant ) is celebrated annually on 1 March, the anniversary of Saint David's death in 589 AD . Since David was canonised in the 12th century by Pope Callixtus II, the feast has been commemorated annually, though it is not a state holiday in the United Kingdom.
At these celebrations, people dress in traditional Welsh garb, eat traditional Welsh food like cawl and Welsh rarebit, and wear daffodils and leeks, which are widely recognised as emblems of Wales and Saint David. Cardiff, Swansea, and Aberystwyth are just a few of the Welsh cities and towns that hold parades on this day.
