Saint David's Day - A National Festival in Wales The 1st of March
The Welsh Red Dragon Children with Daffodils.
People in Wales and those of Welsh origin celebrate the
life of their patron saint, St David, and the Welsh culture on March the 1st
each year. Many people pin a daffodil or leek to their clothes and some,
especially children, wear traditional costumes. St David is the patron saint of
Wales. March the 1st is a day of celebration of both. Many people attend
special church services, parades, choral recitals or Welsh literature readings.
Schools plan celebrations, often involving choirs, on the day.
