Want to know more about Wales? Renderosity member (and native of Wales) thefixer was so kind as to provide us with some information on Wales. This includes a brief rundown of history, government, identity and other facts about this great country. Click here to read more on this jewel of the Atlantic.
While March 1st would have been a good date, today is also important as being the date on which Wales was last proclaimed an independent Country by Owain Glyndwr, whose flag [different from above] has been flown from public buildings in Wales today to commemorate that event!
Note: This month on HDMovie Channel (also avail. at Netflicks) the film "Englishman Who Went Up a Hill and Came Down a Mountain" is playing in rotation. It's a contemporary tale set in Wales. It's one of those precious dry humour (English spelling), Hugh Grant stumbling/mumbling, delicioius Tara Fitzgerald adoring, small village suffering in war, all pulling together, 'We're Welsh, not English" delights! One of my great favorites. Watched it last night. Looks like next showing is Saturday. ::::: Opera :::::
I have no idea in the world what this sale has to do with Wales, but it's a nice deal, nonetheless. I'm minorly annoyed that I bought more than a few of these items at full price--recently--but there are a couple here that I've wanted for a while, so I suppose it evens out, somewhat.
haaa! this is funny - i couldn't believe when i clicked through and saw our flag. thanks so much for featuring us - a lot people think all of the uk is england, and refer to it as such - even brits! diolch yn fawr iawn a gobeithio bydd pawb yn fwynhau'r sel mawr :-) (thank you very much and hopefully everyone will enjoy the big sale)
A couple of interesting facts the thefixer left out: while perhaps not the orginal inhabitants of Britain, the Welsh are in fact descendants of the original Romano-Celtic Britons whose resistance to the Sassunach in the 5th and 6th Centuries are the basis of the Arthurian legends. If I'm not mistaken, the red dragon was King Arthur's standard...the world Welsh is actually a Saxon word, "wealsc," meaning "foreigner;" the Welsh people's own demonym is "Cymry" and the country's proper name is "Cymru," from an ancient term meaning "Companions" (as in "of the Round Table"?) I also believe the Cymry got a bit of their own back at the Sassunach when they put two of their own kings and a queen on the English throne - my understanding is that the Tudors (King Henry VII, VIII and Queen Elizabeth I) were of Welsh ancestry.
Diolch yn fawr ! ( Many thanks : )It's great to see my country mentioned here. I was born on Ynys Mona, the island right at the top of Wales,described as the last stronghold of the druids who were the Priests, Doctors, Poets and Minstrels of ancient Celtia. Dymuniadau gorau (best wishes ) to all !
