History of St David and the Festival

St David or Dewi Sant, is the patron saint of Wales. He was born around 520AD near the town of St David's. He was a priest, renowned as a preacher and helped the spread of Christianity among Celtic tribes of West Britannia, founding many churches and monasteries. His most famous being the Monastery of Menevia in the Welsh Lands End, now called St David's. He remained here until his death on 1st March 589.

March 1st, St David's Day, is celebrated by Welsh people all over the world by the wearing of either a leek or a daffodil. St David's Day usually means singing and eating. Concerts are held to mark the occasion and leeks are worn and eaten. Many local festivities feature traditional Welsh dances, Welsh folk songs and Welsh poems. It is also one of the most important days in any of the Welsh schools, when pupils from primary and secondary schools dress in the traditional costumes and celebrate the day with an Eisteddfod, a festival of poetry, song and dance.
