HAPPY SAINT DAVID'S DAY.
Saint David or Dewi Sant as he is known in Welsh is the patron saint of Wales. Living in the 6th century, he came from an aristocratic family, his mother being SAINT NON.
Founder of a large monastery in West Wales, David was one of the early saints who helped to spread Christianity among the pagan tribes of Western Britain and is perhaps most 'famous' for preaching to a large crowd when the ground, it is said, rises up, creating a hill that enables him to be seen and heard by an even greater number of people.
Celebrated by the Welsh since the 18th century, today many people will wear either a daffodil or a leak, both of which are symbols of Wales and the Y DDRAIG GOCH (The Red Dragon, Wale's national flag) will be much more prominent as will the wearing of TRADITIONAL WELSH COSTUME by young girls.
