Welcome, David !
Here in Wales, St David`s Day is a *big* deal for pretty much everyone !
Many, many people will be seen wearing our national emblems, men most often wearing a small leek, women wearing a daffodil.
Many expatriates will be wearing the emblems, and I know of several friends who, when they were living in England, would cook special celebratory St David`s Day meals for family and friends , mostly Cawl (lamb broth), Braised leeks and Welsh cakes.
St David is the patron saint of Wales, and his memory is held in honour and affection by most Christians.
Information about his life can be found athttp://groups.yahoo.com/group/celt-saints/message/2219 and
