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!
