I was born and bought up in North Wales, but I was never particularly patriotic until I moved down to Cardiff for University and my Aunty bought me my first Wales rugby shirt. I still remember opening my present from her and raising my eyebrows slightly. But as soon as Fresher's Week and Christmas was out of the way, rugby fever hit the city and I was soon at the pub wearing my shirt and cheering on the men in red with their tight white shorts!
This month's Mug of the Month is a great depiction of a Welsh Choir, singing their hearts out to the Welsh National Anthem to support the Welsh rugby team. I loved it and bought it for my Uncle's Christmas present as he sings beautifully in a Male Voice Choir himself. Belting out 'Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau' at the rugby always stirs my Celtic heartstrings.
