St David’s Day, celebrated on 1 March, commemorates the death of the patron saint of Wales in c569 AD.
St David (or Dewi Sant in Welsh) was a bishop who supposedly performed a number of miracles over his life.
While a petition to make the day a bank holiday was rejected in 2007 by Tony Blair’s government the day is still celebrated throughout Wales.
Parades are held in a number of towns and cities and many schools hold a day of celebrations, including musical performances and poetry recitals.
Even further afield there are also events marking the day including festivals in Los Angeles and even Disneyland Paris.
