St. David’s Day

St David’s Day has been celebrated regularly since he was canonised by Pope Callixtus II in the 12th century

Saint David’s Day is the feast day of Saint David, the patron saint of Wales and falls on 1 March, the date of Saint David’s death in 589 AD. The feast has been regularly celebrated since the canonisation of David in the 12th century, wearing of daffodils and leeks – two of the most recognisable symbols of Wales – and eating traditional dishes such as Welsh rare it (cheese 🧀 on toast 🍞)

St David’s Day offers you a golden opportunity to greet any friends, family and colleagues from Wales in their native tongue.

In the Welsh language, “Happy St David’s Day” translates as “Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus”.
