To celebrate Old New Year (13 January) the Mari Lwyd came to the Prom in Aberystwyth.
Sang the songs in the traditional dialect versions:
Wel dyma ni’n dwad
I ofyn cawn gennad i ganu …
(Here we come, innocent friends, to ask if we can sing …)
Then watched the starlings settling under the pier at sunset,
Before a disorderly parade through the town
Culminating at the Clock Tower for more music and song
Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!
One thought on “Mari Lwyd”
That’s awesome! It’s really fun to see old customs still enjoyed in the present, underlined by the fact that it’s a brand new year! Happy New Year!
