Twelfth Night


This is sometimes Women's Christmas or Little Christmas. The women used to claimed this Christmas as their own. The feastings of Christmas were carried out but on a smaller scale.
This feast was called in Irish "Nodlag na mBan". The men used to say "Nodlag na mBan, Nodlag gan mhaith" but women used to say "Nodlag na mBan, Nodlag go maith".
