Nollaig na mBan

womenTomorrow in Ireland is tradionally called Nollaig na mBan (Women's Christmas). With Christmas cooking over, Christmas decorations taken down, Christmas visitors gone and the children ready to go back to school, women can put their feet up.

Although slowly dying out in many parts this old Irish tradition acknowledges the graft of weary mothers and grandmothers over the festive season and celebrates their spiritual and emotional strength, their resilience, feistiness and self-respect.

WhilReve many women have moved out of the kitchen into the professions, politics and agriculture they are still not accepted into other areas of life. It is good then to welcome into our local Church of Ireland Community the recently appointed beautiful Rev. Nicola Halford.

Ladies, I hope you have a lovely day tomorrow as you share a cuppa together.

I think you'll find that many women have not moved out of the kitchen into the various professions, etc. I think you'll find that in many, if not most cases, they've had to drag the kitchen with them.
