WHAT IS SHWMAE SU’MAE DAY?

Western Mail - - SHARES -

SHWMAE Su’mae Day is cel­e­brat­ing its fifth year.

The day, which takes place next Sun­day but is be­ing cel­e­brated with events across the week­end, was de­vised to pro­mote the idea of start­ing every con­ver­sa­tion in Welsh with a “Shwmae” or “Su’mae”.

It’s an op­por­tu­nity to share the Welsh lan­guage with oth­ers, be it at work, at the shops, or out and about with friends.

The day is cel­e­brated through­out Wales and be­yond – with spe­cial events in­clud­ing cof­fee shops and work­shops be­ing held from Mold to New­port, from An­gle­sey to Patag­o­nia – and is the brain­child of um­brella group Dathlu’r Cym­raeg, who hope that a sin­gle “Shwmae” or “Su’mae” this week­end could in­spire thou­sands of peo­ple to start every con­ver­sa­tion in Welsh in fu­ture.
