Nid aur yw pobpeth melyn

The Welsh have an expression: “Nid aur yw pobpeth melyn.”, which means not everything yellow is gold. This expression equates to the English “All that glitters isn’t gold.”

It’s also true that not everything orange is actually orange. Jean thought she was buying two cartons of orange juice this morning in a German supermarket, only to find later, to her profound disappointment, that she had bought two cartons of carrot juice and honey.
