Advent Day 16

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

Happy Advent Season, My Lovelies!  This year on my Advent Calendar I want to share Christmas traditions from around the world along with a daily scripture reading.

Today's tradition comes from Ireland.  January 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, is traditionally when the Irish finish celebrating Christmas. It is also known as Nollaigh na mBean in Irish (Women’s Christmas).  Tradition has it that women get the day off and the men of the house get to do the housework, cooking and take down the Christmas decorations. Women meet up, have a day out and treat themselves.  Methinks I like this tradition, and I do have some Irish blood.  Are you reading this, Mr. Art @ Home?

John 17:18

18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.

Until next time...
