The daffodils and the leek are worn on St David's Day, but where did it all start? There are no hard facts, but in this video, I try to explain some of the myths and legends surrounding this vegetable and flower and the possible reasons it's worn on St David's Day (Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant).

I'll also follow in the footsteps of the Welsh Regiments by eating a raw leek. Spoilers! It's not my favourite way of eating a leek!

I found it particularly difficult to remember my lines in this video; tongue-tied is an understatement. But, in true Jess style, I've saved a few outtakes for the end because you know how I like to keep it real.

I hope you enjoy it!

Oh, and if you're wondering who St David is, he's the patron saint of Wales.
