St. David's Day

Today is Saint David's Day, the Welsh national holiday. Saint David lived in Wales the sixth century, and is said to have died on March 1 which fell on a Tuesday. For this reason, it is believed that he died in either 589 or 601. It is said that his last words were "Gwnewch y pethau bychain mewn bywyd" (Do the little things in life).

To celebrate the day, here's a video of the Welsh singing their national anthem before a rugby match:
