Happy St David’s Day

Daffodils for St David’s Day

Or as the Welsh would put it: Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus!

March 1st is St David’s Day. St David is the Welsh patron saint but just hasn’t attracted the attention that St Patrick has. Maybe because the Welsh tend to gather for singing and reading poetry instead of drinking green beer. (although the green beer is rumored to be an American addition)

Our family used to gather for St David’s Day to eat Welsh Cakes and celebrate our Welsh heritage. Daffodils were always present. One of the national symbols of Wales. Sometimes there would be original poetry shared … always some Dylan Thomas.

  1. Allan, I don’t remember knowing this from when we were kids. Was it a secret family ritual or did you ever invite me to have Welsh Cakes with you? Can you pass along your family recipe for Welsh Cakes? 🙂
