As Christmas quickly approaches, you may be looking to highlight your Irish heritage by including some Irish traditions in your celebration. The following websites do a great job of discussing some fun and interesting things to do.
The Gaelic greeting for ‘Merry Christmas’ is:
‘Nollaig Shona Duit’
……which is pronounced as ‘null-ig hun-a dit’.
The light of the Christmas star to you
The warmth of home and hearth to you
The cheer and good will of friends to you
The hope of a childlike heart to you
The joy of a thousand angels to you
The love of the Son and God’s peace to you.
To have a light in your window on Christmas Eve to welcome the stranger meant that you were welcoming the Holy Family too.
