One Welsh organisation is giving all its staff a day off on St David's Day. Urdd Gobaith Cymru says it is important to celebrate the Welsh identity.
It is the largest organisation for children and young people in Wales with 55,000 members.
The group aims to give children and young people a chance to learn and socialise in the Welsh language.
The organisation says a day off work will gives its staff the opportunity to celebrate St David's Day with family and friends in their local communities or at national events.
Scotland and Ireland both celebrate their national days with an official bank holiday.
There have been previous proposals by several political parties for St David's Day to be made a bank holiday in the past.
