Old Irish Traditions Bundle

Two beautiful nostalgic Christmas cards depicting scenes from traditions Ireland.

Card 1 ~ A candle in the window ~ one old tradition that many continue to maintain in Ireland is the placing of a candle in the window on Christmas Eve, a symbol to welcome strangers and to remember those who are far away from home. Beautiful illustration with an enchanting feel of peaking through the window at the candle lighting to welcome everyone.

Card 2 ~ Nollaig na mBan, also known as ‘Little Christmas’ or ‘Women’s Christmas’…

Back in the day, housework in many homes in Ireland would have been exclusively done by the women of the household. Women’s Little Christmas was traditionally a day when the men were tasked with all of the chores and the women got together and enjoyed a well earned day out. Beautifully illustration with a magical feel of peaking through the Holly to see into the lives of the Irish women celebrating time together on Nollaig na mBan.
