Happy Saint David's Day(3/1/09)

"In Wales on March 1st most schools hold an eistedfodd where the cultural arts are celebrated with singing (solo and group), music, poetry and dance. Women especially young girls dress up in a welsh national costume. These vary but consists of a black tall hat, skirt (often red), white blouse, a long waistcoat, apron and shawl. A daffodil or leek ( Welsh national emblem) is worn by most Welsh people on St David's Day." from
