On this day in Wales - January

Followers on twitter and facebook will no doubt have seen that I have been posting 'on this day' facts since the beginning of the year. It wasn't something I intended on doing but after the first post on January 1st I wondered what had happened on January 2nd?

Not only did I find something interesting but I learnt something too. So I kept going, finding out some interesting facts along the way. And hopefully people are finding them as interesting as I have. So I have decided to see how long I can continue, I'll be posting a daily factoid (or more if I find a better one). And I'll post the tweets on here.

The tweets are interactive, meaning that you can click the links for the wiki pages, youtube videos, pictures embedded on them or even share them if you so wish. I shall edit the page and add more so keep checking back. And if you have a good idea for an "on this day" leave a note in the comments.
