St David's day - daffodils and leeks

St David is the patron saint of Wales and was born some time in the sixth century. His father was called Sant and his mother Non. St David's name was Dewi Sant. It has been claimed that during his life he went on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. It is also documented that once whilst he was preaching the ground where he stood rose into a mound so that everyone could see his face.

Today, many people celebrate St David's day by wearing a daffodil or baby leek pinned to their clothing. Wales often uses the flag of St David, which contains the red dragon, as its national flag.

Happy St David's day to you all!
