Hello Young Lovers wherever you are . . . it is St Dwynwen’s Day

“Nothing wins hearts like cheerfulness”—St Dwynwen

January 25th is  St. Dwynwen’s Day in Wales. St. Dwynwen is the Welsh patron saint of lovers. In her special area of patronage, love, it is said her intercessions will always be granted of God in favor of all true-hearted lovers, so that they should either obtain the object of their affections or else be cured of their passion.

The 14 foot hight Celtic cross above, at Llanddwyn, was placed by the Hon. FG Wynn of Glynllivon, son of the 3rd Lord Newborough, in 1903. No word on whether he put up the cross asking for help obtaining his true love’s heart, or put up the cross as a thank you for help successfully granted.
