St. David's Day

St David's Day is celebrated in Wales on 1 March, in honour of St David (Dewi Sant), the patron saint of Wales. He was a Celtic monk, abbot and bishop, who lived in the sixth century. He spread the word of Christianity across Wales.
The most famous story about Saint David tells how he was preaching to a huge crowd and the ground is said to have risen up, so that he was standing on a hill and everyone had a better chance of hearing him.
St David's Day is commemorated by the wearing of daffodils or leeks. Both plants are traditionally regarded as national emblems. On St David's Day, some children in Wales dress in their national costume, which consists of a tall black hat, white frilled cap and long dress. The national flag of Wales, depicting a fiery red dragon (Y Ddraig Goch) against a green and white background, is also flown.

My photo

This photo I took a few hours ago. In the photo you can see my best friend and me. She has a birthday today so I met her after her school to congratulate her and give the present. She was very happy to see me. Today is a good and important day and when we met we decided to take this funny to memorialize this event for ages. I hope after a few years we will still be friends and we will take more photos together.
