St. Davids' day (WELSH)
St. Davids' Day is celebrated on March 1st, especially by the Americans of the Welsh origin, although this day is not a public celebrate here in the US. They make it tradition to celebrate it each year. As any other holiday day it's a time for people to remember where they came from or apart of a family 'home' tradition. They post the Welsh flag around during the day as well as daffodils or leeks pinned to their clothing. Although people do not talk much about St. David he is very important to the Welsh culture. Some say that he lived to the age of 100, but about 500 years after his death the first text was made (So I say believe that if you please). So some of the stories about St. David are mixed together with truth and legend. But he was know to be physically strong and very gentle and tall although he diet was frugal. He was the son of Sants and the grandson of Ceredigion who was a prince in south-west Wales. St. David made his way around Wales and to other places such as, France, Jerusalem and Ireland. With that he founded many monasteries and churches and with time became a archbishop. In 1120 St. David was glorified and March first was then known as St. Davids' Day.
