Irish traditions?

Postby SantaByMail on Fri Sep 29, 2006 4:03 pm

Does anyone know of any Christmas traditions from Ireland? My brother-in-law is Irish and really into his heritage--I was hoping to find him a gift related to both Christmas and Ireland.

That is a good question, I did find a few answers that talk about Irish Christmas traditions:



1. A Candle in the Window - placing a candle in the window

2. Laden Table - food for the tired, wandering traveler.

3. Holly wreaths.

I'm going to pass these along to my sister. She's having her first baby in March. I know that she and her husband will want to start creating special Nichols family traditions.

I don't really know any traditions Irish traditions myself but thanks for the link. Very interesting and informative. For my family it has been a tradition for us ever since I can remember that we get to open one present the night of Christmas eve before we go to bed. Does anyone else to that?
