Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus!

01 March 2022 Fun and Event

The National Day of Wales is St. David’s Day and is always held on the 1st of March.

Saint David (known as Dewi Sant in the Welsh language) was a Celtic monk born towards the end of the fifth century and was Archbishop of Wales. He spread the word of Christianity across Wales, founding 11 churches across Wales and Brittany. His influence is shown by the number of churches dedicated to him in Wales.

On St. David’s day, Welsh people may wear one or both of the national emblems of Wales on their lapel – the daffodil or the leek. The tradition of wearing a leek is said to have arisen when a unit of Welsh soldiers were able to distinguish each other from troops of similarly attired English enemy soldiers by wearing leeks.
