National Days in Britain are not celebrated to the same extent as in France or America. Scotland's National Day is St. Andrew's Day (30 November), which has now largely been overshadowed by Burns' Night. St. David's Day (1 March) is the National Day of Wales. England National Day is St. George's Day (23 April) which coincides with William Shakespeare's birthday. St. Patrick's Day is an official Bank Holiday in Northern Ireland.
