Nollaig na mBan

Today, 6th of January is the feast of the epiphany but here in Ireland it is also Women’s Christmas – Nollaig na mBan.

To mark the occasion I have written a guest post for the Anti Room Blog which you can read here.

  1. oh my dear, I did this once.
    We used to have a 12th Night Party on or near this date but I'm so tired from not-women's christmas that I can't imagine! I'll pop over and see you.

  2. I was very confused last year when a friend texted me on 6th Jan to wish me a Happy Little Women's Christmas. It seems like a very odd occasion to me. I'm taking great delight in getting the tree out and everything packed away for another year!

  3. Great post Barbara, I did think of Nollaig na Mban as I ran around yesterday.
    I will however take a few moments on Monday when the kids get back to school.

  4. I hope you enjoyed your tea! I loved the post – very interested in what you had to say about being a housewife, (hate the word!)…I really enjoyed this years womens christmas- wine with old friends…
