We’ve been talking about St. Dwynwen's Day a lot this week, with it coming up on Thursday. This Welsh day of love, honors the patron saint of lovers, St. Dwynwen and we thought it was a great time to shout out about our Welsh Lamb from Rosedew Farm and other Welsh suppliers which is available from Farmers Pantry all week along with some special sides.
For those who want to know more about the day…
Origin of St. Dwynwen's Day:
St. Dwynwen lived in the 5th century and is considered the Welsh equivalent of St. Valentine. According to legend, Dwynwen was a princess who fell in love with a young man named Maelon. When their love faced challenges, Dwynwen sought solace in prayer. Legend has it that an angel appeared and granted her three wishes. Dwynwen's first wish was for Maelon to be released from his love for her. Her second wish was to remain unmarried, dedicating her life to helping others. Finally, her third wish was to help all true lovers find happiness.
