St David's Day, which falls on March 1 every year, is the feast day of Wales' patron saint. It was declared Wales' national day of celebration in the 18th Century and it is still celebrated throughout the country. Today the celebrations usually involve the singing of traditional songs followed by a Te Bach, a tea with bara brith (famous welsh fruited bread) and teisen bach (welsh cake). Young girls are encouraged to wear national costume and leeks or daffodils are worn, being the national symbols of Wales. Get access to all st.
