Who'll be celebrating?
Little Christmas is also called Women's Christmas (Irish: Nollaig na mBan), and sometimes Women's Little Christmas. The tradition, still very strong in Cork and Kerry is so called because of the Irish men taking on all the household duties for the day. Most women hold parties or go out to celebrate the day with their friends, sisters, mothers, and aunts. Bars and restaurants serve mostly women and girls on this night. Children often buy presents for their mothers and grandmothers.

Sounds brilliant. Can't see Hubster taking on all the household duties though. It's not too short a notice to round up the girls for a night out ^_^

Taking on the household duties for just one day a year, I'll have some of that.

I'd better just go and check if it's ok first though. :smile:
