There’s always room for more celebrations in Buffalo, especially when the celebration at hand takes on a historic role ala Women’s Little Christmas Party. Did you know that in Ireland, there is a special day that is dedicated to women who historically worked their ‘arses’ off during the holiday season? That’s right! Because of their hard work to ensure that everything went off without a hitch, women were provided a day when men did all of the household chores, and women got to party with their friends. The day market the end of the holiday season.
The women laugh, sing, exchange fun gifts, read poetry & prose, reminisce, visit and, oh yes, drink Guinness. Slainte!
Nollaig na mBan, or Women’s Little Christmas, featured gatherings of women at bars, and restaurants, who would ‘take a load off’, and raise a pint to their success, friendships, family, and fruitful futures. It was a day of bonding that never made its way into the US for unknown reasons.
