St. David is the patron saint of Wales. March 1st is his feast day. Hence the Welsh title. Let's celebrate!

Rather than put a daffodil in my hair and dress up in red & white, let's watch some Welsh performers being awesome.
Did I make a post about a Welsh holiday just so I could post a video of Dame Shirley Bassey KILLING it with "Goldfinger"? Yes. Yes I did.
