On the 1st of March we celebrate St. David’s Day with our Welsh friends. It’s a day when we think of daffodils, leeks and male voice choirs in the valleys.
St. David is best-known for a miracle which is said to have taken place when he was preaching in the middle of a large crowd and the ground on which he stood is reputed to have risen up to form a small hill. A white dove, which became his emblem, was seen settling on his shoulder.
