St. David apparently died on this date, and approximately 20 centuries later I was born.
It is not commonly recognized in North America, but March 1st, is St. David's Day - a day of remembrance for the death of the Patron Saint. Tradition holds that he died in the year 589 and, in the 18th century the first day of March was declared a national holiday in Wales.

I don't have an ounce of Welsh blood in me, but I enjoy celebrating March 1st. anyway. Glad my mother had me 75 years ago today on good old Canadian terra firma!
