An Aidbhint agus Breith Chríost : An Irish Advent & Christmas

A light that shines again wishes you a Blessed Advent as you prepare for the coming celebrations of the Nativity of Christ! In Irish Gaelic those two seasons are called: An Aidbhint agus Breith Chríost.

As you prepare for Christmas this year, you might enjoy reading about some of the Irish Christmas traditions that I highlighted last year during Thomas MacEntee's Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories. In the nine articles at Small-leaved Shamrock and seven articles here at A light that shines again, I hope you'll find inspiration during your Christmas preparations in the wonderful traditions of the Irish people as they have historically celebrated this glorious season.

Happy preparations to all of you!

You might also enjoy reading Bridget Haggerty's An Advent Memory and a little lesson on Irish Gaelic for the Advent and Christmas season, both on the Irish Culture & Customs website
