The 1st of March is St David's Day.
St David is the Patron Saint of the beautiful country of Wales. He’s also the Patron Saint of Doves. He was known as Dewi Sant in Welsh and he was born in Pembrokeshire.
He was known for performing miracles. For example, apparently he was preaching to a big crowd and he raised the ground beneath him into a hill, so that everyone could hear his sermon!
There are events to celebrate St David’s Day all over the country. People wear a daffodil or a leek, and children wear Welsh costumes. They take part in traditional Welsh dancing, take part in school concerts, recite poetry and sing folk songs. They might eat Welsh cakes, Welsh rarebit or some Bara brith tea loaf.
So I thought I’d raise awareness of the work being done to keep Wales and her wildlife beautiful, to preserve her wonderful places.
