How to Celebrate St Davids Day

  ‘Gwnewch y pethau bychain mewn bywyd’

‘Do the little things in life’ 

March 1st is one of the most celebrated events in the Welsh calendar, a day dedicated to the life of our patron saint of wales, St David, Dewi Sant.  

Saint David was born during a stormy on cliff top in St Davids in the year 500. The ruins of St Non's Chapel was built near in our honour of Davids mother; Saint Non. Next to the chapel lies a holy well which is said to have healing powers.

Saint David, famous for building the foundations of St David’s Cathedral, was also famous for being a Teetotalling-vegan, wild swimming, preacher of a man;  dedicating his life to eating leeks & teaching peace and harmony to all he met. St David passed away on March 1st, which is now known as Dydd Gwyl Dewi, St Davids Day.

St David’s Day is traditionally celebrated by wearing leeks & Daffodils, munching on cawl & belting out Can on lan with your butties in the school assembly. There are so many ways to celebrate St David day, but the simplest (and best by far) is simply celebrating Welsh culture through friends and family. So, Invite your friends over, fill the house with daffodils, cook traditional welsh meals, and sip down the best selections of beverages Wales has to offer. Here’s some of MamGu’s favourites.
