Dydd Dewi Sant hapus

It’s the 1st of March again, the daffodils are in full bloom, plenty of people have leeks pinned to their clothes, at dusk the Empire State building will be lit up in the colours of the Welsh flag, many school kids in Wales are dressed up in traditional costume, the ale will be flowing, and of course, later on we'll all be sitting round a nice coal fire, drinking daffodil juice and calling each other ‘boyo’ more than we usually do.

Happy St.Davids Day.

Dydd Dewi Sant hapus, to you Curly.

It is bringing back memories of my mother pinning daffodils to our coats every year, and us trying to explain the significance to our Canadian school friends... at that time most had never heard of Wales.
My parents will be in Cardiff in a few days time, to get the celebratory hangover... I am most jealous!

My colleague, who speaks decent Welsh from just three years studying English at Aberystwyth, and I celebrated with a Welsh lamb wrap for lunch.

I discovered that Dewi Sant is unique in that the other three patron saints of Britain were not actually born in the countries they represent.
