Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant

flag of St. David

It’s Saint David’s Day, and, as he is their patron saint, it is a national holiday in Wales. The Welsh wear leeks or daffodils [called Peter’s leek in Welsh] on this day.

I laughed when I read the title. My maternal Grandmother was Welsh, & I picked up a few phrases. 🙂

Good memories. 🙂

That’s David’s flag, although others will use the ‘Red Dragon’. The Welsh need more vowels 😉

You should hear a Welsh woman arguing with her Irish husband!! 😆 Was better than TV when I was a kid. 😀 Welsh don’t use pauses or spaces! They have amazingly figured out how to tirade whilst breathing through their nose (or some form of osmosis? or magic?) And the Irish in full on Gaelic mode are very similar!

And when they were done, everything was just back to normal. Like nothing had happened! So weird! 😀 But there was never any feeling of… meanness. You know? Not sure exactly how to describe it. 🙂

When I’m having a quiet day, I can close my eyes & see & hear them. Always makes me smile. 🙂

Yeah… good times!

Without vowels you don’t need to breathe 😉

With my maternal grandparents it was Ireland v. Switzerland with neither side interested in what the other was saying 😆
