Although English is the everyday language for most of the inhabitants of Wales, thanks to the efforts of many dedicated people, the Welsh language still flourishes in some parts. Welsh culture and tradition are celebrated at a festival called the National Eisteddfod, which is actually a 19th century creation, although the history of local Eisteddfods is much older. Tourism is a key employer and revenue earner for Wales, although sheep farming predominates in the mountains and moorlands, with dairy and mixed farming around the coast.
