Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant Hapus!

The Red Dragon of WalesToday is a (par­tic­u­larly) good day to be Welsh.

It’s a funny thing, though — being a Welsh web designer born in “Newport, Monmouthshire,” as it was. Monmouthshire was “mostly English” until 1972. It still is, in terms of lan­guage, though at least schools now teach Welsh.

In fact, having grown up around Newport (Casnewydd), Chepstow, Monmouth, Cardiff and Bristol, I’m very much a man of Gwent. Still, my roots in Glamorgan and years working on archae­olo­gical digs across South Wales taught me enough Welsh history to take real pride in it.

That’s why I’m still espe­cially keen to support small busi­nesses and other organ­isa­tions across South Wales. Sadly though, I’ve been too busy learning web and pro­gramming lan­guages to learn that of my kin. Thankfully, I’m not alone in being so pre­oc­cupied. So today is a day for many of us to practice our Welsh phrases — the phrases that still somehow manage to bind us together as a nation.

Cymru am byth!
