Saint David's Day, the patron saint of Wales, is one of the most important holidays for the people of Wales and is celebrated as a patriotic and cultural festival for Wales around the world. The saint will be honored not only by the Welsh, but also by residents of other countries whose ancestors lived in Wales. The Empire State Building in New York will be illuminated in green, red and white.
Many prophets said that at the birth of St. David, many miracles were predicted for him. March 1 is the day David died. Saint David's Day has been celebrated as a religious festival in the Protestant Reformation since the 16th century. In the 18th century, this day became the national festival of Wales and remains so to this day.
Information about St. David, a church leader of the second half of the 6th century, has come down to our days from the work of a certain Rigifark, who lived at the end of the 11th century.
