Hen Galan

Diary entry showing Hen Galan

Most of us in the UK and western world celebrate New Year on 1 January, following the Gregorian calendar.

However in the Gwaun Valley, Pembrokeshire people celebrate the New Year on 13 January, following the older Julian calendar.

Children sing to receive their 'Calennig', or New Year gifts (usually sweets, fruit and money).
