Happy Saint Davids Day to Everyone!!

St David's Day is celebrated in Wales on 1 March, in honour of Dewi Sant or St David, 
the patron saint of Wales.

 
It is the custom to wear either a leek or a daffodil - two of our national emblems - 
and for young girls to wear the national costume 


Many people attend special church services, parades, choral recitals or Welsh literature readings. 
Schools plan celebrations, often involving choirs, on the day.  
And of course Welsh Cakes and Bara Brith are eaten

Grandma's Bakestones, Welsh cakes

The Welsh flag, a red dragon on a white and green background, 
is displayed prominently and a festive mood prevails.

Happy St Davids Day

Singing in Wales is second nature for both young and old
Here are Only Boys Aloud when they first appeared on the Britains Got Talent 2012
bringing the beauty of one of our beloved songs to the world
