For those who dont know, St. David is the patron saint of Wales.

St. David died on the 1st March in 589, and we have celebrated since the 12th century since he was made a Saint.

Google recognised the day with a special doodle in the form of a welsh love spoon. Richard Osman posted a great extract on twitter from his book “The Pointless History of the World”

“Wales is awesome, I think that is universally agreed. Quite apart from anything the Welsh are charming, funny and self-depreciating, and yet still manage to have a dragon on their flag. That is ballsy beyond belief.”
