  • AmeriCymru Welsh American Events - January

    January/Ionawr


    llandwyn islandHappy New Year! There is much to celebrate in the month of January. On the 17th of January 1781 the Continentals under Daniel Morgan ( a great general of Welsh descent ) defeated an English force at Cowpens during The War of Independence. On the same day Lloyd George the first Welsh Prime Minister of Great Britain was born.

    January 25th is St. Dwynwen's Day. St. Dwynwen is the Welsh Patron Saint of lovers so this day might be regarded as the Welsh Valentines Day.

    The 31st is also a significant date. On this day in 1893 the famous Welsh eccentric Dr. William Price had himself publicly cremated on a hill at Llantrisant in South Wales. Cremation was illegal in the 19th century but Price's earlier cremation of his dead son, for which he was prosecuted, helped to pave the way for a change in UK law.
