It's St David's Day today! St David, or Dewi Sant as we Welsh like to call him, is the patron Saint of Wales, and I love March 1st! I always feel it's the first harbinger of Spring, and although the weather can be still unpredictable at this time of year, the spring flowers are blooming, and the days seem a little longer and brighter.
When I was a child we always held our school Eisteddfod on St David's Day and great fun it always was too - compeditive mind, but fun nevertheless. We had to wear red ties instead of our usual one, and we would also wear daffodils.
I still love to have daffodils in the house for St David's Day, and we usually eat lamb with mint sauce!
