Nadolig Llawen i Chi

Hi my nerdlets, this is just me popping in to say Nadolig Llawen i Chi/Happy Christmas To (All of) You!




Christmas cookies





And if you don't celebrate Christmas, then have a great festive celebration of whatever sort you're having, or just a nice day in general :)

Here in Wales (those who are playing the when-she-mentions-Wales drinking game, take a swig!) we grow up with Father Christmas in first-language-English homes.

First-language-Welsh homes, and those who go to Welsh-language-medium schools, have Siôn Corn, which roughly translates to Jack Chimney - a festive spirit who wears green and lives in chimneys.

Of course, both Father Christmas and Siôn Corn have been absorbed into that conglomeration of European figures which is Santa Claus - so that's basically what you'll see around the place.



And, because I couldn't resist sharing this with you, here's a more-than-slightly bemusing finger puppet video in Welsh from YouTube:
