So, the Welsh know a little thing or two about love, we have our own special hug, a cwtch, and our very own Valentine’s Day. Dydd Santes Dwynwen | St Dwynwen’s Day is celebrated every year on 25th January. Why wait until February when you can wish your partner ‘dwi’n dy garu di’ (I love you) a few weeks earlier?
National Cuddle Up Day falls on 6th January annually. January has some of the coldest temperatures of the year, it is a great excuse to warm up with those closest to you.
The word cwtch is the closest thing to the English equivalents’ ‘cuddle’, ‘snuggle’ and ‘hug’. However, it has a deeper meaning for the Welsh.
