21:24St David's Day, a Welsh Holiday
St David's Day is the national day of Wales and is celebrated on the first Day of March. It commemorates the patron saint of Wales, David or Dewi Sant, as he is called in Welsh.
Many people pin a daffodil or leek to their clothes and some, especially children, wear traditional costumes.
St David's Day is not a public holiday in the United Kingdom or countries such as Canada and the United States. Therefore government offices, schools, post offices and businesses are open.
However, it is a day of celebration so many schools, institutions and even businesses will have a special program for the day. Some villages and towns hold special parades so there may be some local disruption to traffic or public transport.
