Wake: Up to Poetry

"The act of poetry is a rebel act."

What’s Irish for “Merry Christmas to You”?

(Celtic Knot Christmas Wreath  from the very impressive Nacho Grandma’s Quilts  .  Check out the other Celtic Knot designs while you’re there.)

Nollaig shona duit! (Say “null-ig hun-nuh dit.”)

“Nollaig” (which also means “Christmas” in Scottish Gaelic) derives from the Latin “natalica” for “birthday” and can sometimes be used as a personal name, like “Noel.”   We hope that can score some points in your next round of pub trivia.

 

Happy Christmas!
