Saint David's Day

We are going to learn about Saint David's Day, a national day of celebration in Wales to honor the patron saint of Wales, Saint David. Saint David's Day is a day filled with tradition, culture, and history, and we are going to explore all of these aspects in our lesson today. We will learn about who Saint David was and why he is so important to the people of Wales. We will also explore the traditions and customs associated with celebrating Saint David's Day, such as wearing daffodils and leeks, as well as singing Welsh songs.
