LBC Studio

Mystery Hour Question 

When I wash my child my other half always tells me to make sure I run the water lukewarm. I don’t want to sound silly, but why Luke? Why not Mark or Matthew or John?

Answer 

**Definitive **

Name: Mike, Dartford

Qualification: Informed by R.E teacher Reverend Collier

Answer: The origin of lukewarm comes from the 14th or 15th century when Luke was spelt ‘lewk,’ which in old English used to mean tepid. I have no idea why, it’s just changed over the years.
