People in Wales are typically very proud of their heritage, and their traditional public holidays are always well-celebrated with a whole host of festivities and merriment. The start of next month marks one of the most important in the Welsh calendar, St David’s Day.
St David’s Day falls on March 1st each year, and as you might have guessed, is in recognition of the patron saint of Wales, St David. In the 18th century, this day was declared as an official national day of celebration in Wales.
Patriotic residents of Wales celebrate this day in a number of different ways. Some sit down and enjoy a hearty and traditional Welsh feast, whilst others take part in parades, festivals and eisteddfods.
Here in North Wales, restaurants in Snowdonia and the surrounding areas celebrate the event by offering a special menu for the occasion. This year, the lovely people at The Groes Inn are embracing this much celebrated event with a very special menu of their own.
