When is St. David's feast day?
St. David is the patron saint of Wales and his feast-day the International Day of the Welsh People, so wearing a daffodil or leek would be very appropriate. Yearly there… will be a street parade in Cardiff and Colwyn Bay, well worth a watch if you can get S4C on your TV. Try throwing a party or festival meal (if you feel particularly patriotic), with some traditional dishes. If you are one of those 'English' types, it is often customary to make some kind of anti-Welsh gesture. It used to be tradition to close all the windows of the house, lest the fleas get in. I don't recommend celebrating in this way. It's not really in the spirit of 'Cymru am byth'.
Saint David's Day is the feast day of Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, and falls on 1 March each year. The date of March 1st was chosen in remembrance of the death of… Saint David on that day in 589, and has been celebrated by followers since then. The date was declared a national day of celebration within Wales in the 18th century. In 2006 Saint David's Day was officially celebrated on 28 February by Roman Catholics and on 2 March by the Anglican Church in Wales, because 1 March 2006 was Ash Wednesday, which is a day of penitence on which feast days are not celebrated.
