Women’s Little Christmas – A Blessing from the Old Gods
Once upon a time in Ireland the Celts celebrated the feminine energy with a feast for the Ladies of the Land and their hearts. It was an obligatory feast that allowed women to have a massive party without the presence of their men. They would leave the house chores for their husbands and head to the fairy rings. There they would dance, drink mead and bless Mother Earth so that the spring would bring forth a good crop. The date was not stable, but it ranged from the 3rd to the 6th of January. It coincided with the end of The Yule Celebrations, and the beginning of the end of winter. Known as Nollaig na mBan in Irish, Women’s Little Christmas is still a very strong tradition in Limerick, Cork and Kerry.
Nowadays the tradition is more about the ladies relaxing after the Christmas Holidays rather than blessing the fertile land of the Emerald Isle.
