What does Dydd Santes Dwynwen Hapus Mean? Story Behind the Welsh Valentine's Day

Dydd Santes Dwynwen Hapus means Happy St. Dwynwen's Day in Welsh. It is the Welsh version of Valentine's Day and fast becoming more and more popular each year.

I had a lovely phone interview with Dot Davies on BBC Radio Wales on Friday. She asked me the story behind the day. You can listen to an abridged version of the tale below.
