St. David's DayDydd Gwyl Dewi Sant
St David’s Day commemorates the day ~ March 1, 589 ~ that the patron saint of Wales died. It wasn’t until the 18th century that St David’s Day was declared a national day of celebration in Wales. A 2007 attempt to make the day a national holiday was rejected by Prime Minister Tony Blair, despite polls showing 87% support by Welsh people.
St. David is usually depicted holding a dove or standing on a hill. His symbol is the leek.
