🎄 Experience an Irish Christmas with a Twist! 🍀

‘Tis the season, and this year, we are determined to infuse an Irish flavor into your celebrations. Wondering how to add “a cúpla focal” (a couple of words) to your festive greetings?
Here’s a guide:

  • “NOLLAIG SHONA DUIT/DAOIBH” – “MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU
  • The most common Christmas greeting in Ireland. Use “Nollaig shona duit” when speaking to one person and “Daoibh” when speaking to more than one. Pronunciation: “null-ig ho-nuh ghwich and null-ig ho-nuh jeev”.
  • “GURAB AMHLAIDH DUIT/DAOIBH” – “THE SAME TO YOU”
    Respond with this phrase when wished a merry Christmas.
    Pronunciation:” guh-rub ow-lig ghwich/jeev”.
  • “CÁ BHFUIL MO BHRONNTANAISÍ?” – “WHERE ARE MY PRESENTS?”
    (For those who cherish the childish joy of presents).
    Pronunciation: “brun-tun-esh-ee”.
  • AT DINNER TO SAY “GUH-REV MAH AG-UT” – “THANK YOU”
    Essential phrases for the feast.
    ”Turcaí” – “turkey”, ”Prátaí Rósta” – “roast potatoes”, and “Bachlóga Bhrúiséile” – “Brussels sprouts”.A traditional Irish toast:
    “GO MBEIRIMID BEO AG AN AM SEO ARÍS” – “may we all be alive at this time next year”.

Snuggle up!
“Drualas” – “Spot mistletoe” and give a conveniently-placed someone a “Póg” (a kiss).
LOOSEN THAT BELT AND EAT YOUR FILL
Indulge in “putóg na Nollag”,- “Christmas pudding” “císte Nollag” – “Christmas cake”, “Píoga Mhionra” – “mince pies”, and “Ceapairí Turcaí” – “turkey sandwiches”.
FINALLY, BOLG LÁN
Collapse on the sofa (“Tolg”) for some seasonal television (“Teilifís”).
Enjoy the movie with “Home Alone”.

BY THE TIME YOU’VE MASTERED ALL OF THAT…
“Oíche Chinn Bliana” (New Year’s Eve) approaches. Learn “Athbliain faoi mhaise duit/daoibh” for wishing a prosperous New Year.

Master these phrases, and you’ll celebrate Christmas and New Year in true Irish style, kicking off 2024 perfectly. As they say in Irish, “Tús Maith Is Ea Leath Na H-Oibre” – a good start is half the work! 🌟🎅
