St David’s Day

Dydd Gwŷl Dewi Sant hapus i bawb! (Happy St David’s Day everyone)!

So much fun was had at all our nurseries yesterday as the staff and children celebrated St David’s Day.  The children came to Acorns dressed in traditional welsh costumes, welsh sports kits or welsh colours.  They enjoyed singing welsh songs, traditional  welsh craft and art activities.  Delicious welsh rarebit and cawl was served for lunch and the children helped to make welsh cakes which everyone enjoyed for afternoon tea.

St David’s Day is the feast day of St David, the Patron Saint of Wales. It is celebrated on March the 1st every year which is the date St David is thought to have died in 589AD.

The St David’s Day Parade is an unmissable highlight, with different groups parading in red, yellow and green through the streets of Cardiff, culminating in a rendition of ‘Mae Hen Wlad fy Nhadau’ outside St David’s Hall.
