Happy (Welsh) Valentine’s Day

25 Jan

Before you think that I’ve got my dates mixed up, today in Wales we celebrate Dydd Santes Dwynwen [St Dwynwen’s Day]. St Dwynwen is the Welsh patron saint of love, which makes her the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine.  

There are several versions of her story, which you can find here.

I’ve already been brought flowers in work today. Happy days 🙂
