Happy St David’s Day

St David is the patron saint of Wales and his day is celebrated on 1 March. The patriotic amongst us wear a daffodil or a leek (something to do with the bulbs looking the same???) and small girls dress up in Welsh costume to go to school.
I googled St David as I know nothing about him; apparently he was a real person and his shrine in the city of St David’s in Wales is considered a place of pilgrimage. Apparently a visit to the shrine is equal to two visits to Rome and one to Jerusalem. I never before realised there is a points system in place on these matters!
