Nollaig na mBan / Womens Little Christmas

On this day it is the tradition in Ireland for the women to get together and enjoy their own Christmas, while the menfolk stay at home and handle all the chores. It is also common for children to buy their mothers and grandmother’s presents on this day, though this custom is gradually being overtaken by Mother’s Day.

Although Nollaig na mBan is slowly dying out in many parts of Ireland, in Cork on the South West coast, the tradition is still very strong. Many bars and restaurants in Kinsale will report a near 100% female clientele on this day, as the Corkonian and Kinsale women meet up with girlfriends, sisters, aunts and mothers to celebrate their own little Christmas with Nollaig na mBan
