Warm Your Cockles

I saw this in a pub during the Christmas break. I had never come across this before so I thought you might not either. Cockles are a type of food that the English eat at the sea side so this phrase really confused me.

From the research I have found says that the full phrase is 'warm the cockles of your heart' and that cockles probably used to be Kachels which are tiles that were on stoves and fireplaces that radiated heat.

But basically it means warm your inner feelings or insides.

All the Best!
