St Dwynwen’s Day – Welsh Valentine’s Day

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 – Anyone can cuddle, but only the Welsh can cwtch!

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 Collins Dictionary says, “If you cuddle someone, you put your arms around them and hold them close as a way of showing your affection.”
