So… who is St. David and what is St. David’s Day?

St David is the patron saint of Wales. People in Wales and those of Welsh origin celebrate the life of their patron saint by pinning a daffodil or leek to their clothes and some, especially children, wear traditional costumes.

St David plays a very important role in Welsh culture but little is known about his life; it is claimed he lived for over 100 years and died on Tuesday, March 1, 589, but the first texts on his life only appeared around five hundred years after his death. So, it is difficult to tell which aspects of the St David’s story are true and which are legend.

If you’ve got some amazing St. David’s facts – we’d love to hear from you, please leave your facts in the comment box below…

    St David factoid – he was known as Dewi Dyfrdwy – or David the water-drinker – think he is said to have only drunk water and eaten wild watercress.
