Happy St. David's Day!

March 1 in Wales is St David's Day
died c.544.

From Suffolk:
        First comes David, then comes Chad             (St. Chad's Day- March 2)
        And then comes Winneral as tho' he was mad    (St. Winwaloe- March 3)
                                                          ie, bad weather begins then.
                English Folk-Rhymes, GF Northall, 1892.

ALSO:         
        There were three men of Gotam,
                as I haue heard men say,
        That needs would ride a hunting
                vpon Saint Dauids day.

This well-known song was embodied in a black-letter broadside ballad, "Choice of Inuentions," Or Seuerall sorts of the figure of three, entered in the Stationers' Register 2 January 1632
                [thanx Malcolm Douglas of Mudcat (etc)]
