When our DC were young, their junior school headmaster was Welsh, and every year he bought every child in the school a Mars Bar, so naturally they were all very keen on St David's Day.grin The sugar police would be down on him like a ton of bricks these days.

Happy St David's Day to all gransnetters with or without Welsh heritage. Thank you for the stdavids, Laura, forgot to buy some yesterday so will be raiding the garden. I do have a leek in the fridge though hmm. Please can we keep the stdavids for a while for a touch of Spring?

It does not feel like a Happy St David's Day! - I am trying to book tickets for the St David's Festival (!) and the * website will not let me pay as it says my country information is wrong - I live in the UK; that is what I have put!!! I have tried to send them a message to explain the problem and messages will not send from their site.

So I am a bit grouchy about dear St David at the moment!!!!

But have a good day all!

My children grew up in Wales. Dressing up on St David's Day was mandatory, babies too, wearing Welsh bonnets and shawls. The boys wore little leeks, which they nibbled during the school day.
They always learned Welsh songs and when I asked, "What does it mean in English?" they looked blank.
I'm afraid I never embraced Welsh culture as I lived in a horrible dump with a horrible husband. I escaped after 22 years and have never been back but am sorry now for all that I missed.

Happy St David's Day from an English person - rather late but I have been over to Wales to a school Eisteddfod and it was very enjoyable. I also attempted to make Welsh cakes for DH but burnt the first batch; the pigeons enjoyed them.
