Tin Anniversary Gifts Thank You St. Piran

Many may not have heard of St. Piran outside of Cornwall, but those Cornish residences know of him and his story very well, so well in fact that a day every year has been dedicated to his memory. The 5th March known as St. Piranís Day.

This popular Cornish holy man is said to have floated across the seas from Ireland to land in Cornwall and has been credited to be the person who discovered Tin, the very material that has been mined in Cornwall for hundreds of years.

Today, celebrations are taking place across Cornwall with the common St Piranís flag being waved across the county, the black and white cross, said to symbolise molten tin pouring out of the rock. We wanted to write this quick big thank you to St Piran, the patron saint of tin minners, without you discovering tin we may not be making wonderful tin anniversary gifts.
