Fantastic collection of ideas there, Alexandra. You might want to add something about St David (Dewi Sant) whose day is 1st March. He is the Patron saint of Wales. When I was a child growing up in Wales, we all wore Daffodills pinned to our clothes on St David's day!

Thanks Dorothy! I'll look that one up.
