Way back in 2013 Wales celebrated its first Shwmae/Su’Mae Day . The aim was to promote the use of, to raise awareness of and to celebrate the Welsh language, by simply starting each conversation throughout the day with ‘Shwmae’ or ‘Su’Mae’.

This year we would like you, our SSiW family, to get involved via social media platforms and here on the Say Something in Welsh forum.
Based on a wonderful idea by @nia.llywelyn, we’re asking you to share with us and each other who your Welsh heroes are.
So whether you choose Twitter or Facebook or the SSiW forum, how about using this format -
"Shwmae (or Sumae or Su’Mae) fy enw i yw [—] a fy hoff arwr Cymraeg i ydy [—]. "
Then tell us all one or two things about your hero or why you like them? If you don’t quite feel confident enough writing in Welsh, you could record yourself speaking in a short audio or video clip.
If you do use social media platforms, please use the following hashtags to make your Shwmae posts more visible.
