1st March is St David’s Day here in Wales. It’s the day when children are allowed to leave school uniform at home and dress in something resembling National Dress. Tradition has it that the ladies wear a daffodil in their lapel and the men wear a leek – not the real thing, just a lapel pin. The daffodil and the leek are National Emblems of Wales, along with the more widely know heraldic symbol of the Red Dragon.
We also tend to eat Welsh Cakes – haven’t a clue why, but they just taste good.
Cardiff also had Royal visitors today, in honour of St David’s Day
