Introduction to St. David's Day

St. David's Day, celebrated on March 1st each year, is a feast day in honor of St. David, the patron saint of Wales. This special holiday is marked by a display of Welsh pride and cultural traditions, including parades, singing, and the wearing of daffodils or leeks – symbols of Wales. People honor their heritage, cherish their culture, and remember the teachings of St. David, whose motto was 'Do the little things in life.' It is a day filled with national pride, remembrance, and appreciation for Welsh history.

Piccles: A New Way to Celebrate St. David's Day

Piccles presents a unique and creative way to embrace the spirit of St. David's Day. As a digital engagement tool, Piccles invites people to connect through the simple joy of drawing, regardless of artistic skill. In the context of St. David's Day, Piccles can be used to add an interactive and visually expressive element to the holiday festivities. Through delightfully charming and 'delightfully ugly' drawings, people can share personal symbols of Wales, express their pride, and create digital art that reflects the holiday’s essence – all while fostering connections and creating memories.

Connecting St. David's Day with Piccles

Piccles can serve as a modern medium to highlight St. David's national and cultural significance.
