A Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year from all of us here at Celtic Thunder.

Christmas is a wonderful time to embrace the year that has passed, to remember loved ones and rejoice with new additions to our families. It’s a very busy time for shopping, sharing meals, sending cards, catching up with friends and family and driving home for the holidays. Christmas and the New Year are also a wonderful time to reflect on the year gone by and our resolutions for 2018. Now, that is something that all of us find hard to keep but with a bit of Irish luck which, we send to all our wonderful fans, you’ll be able to keep those resolutions and remember, sometimes resolutions are made to be broken so let’s not beat ourselves up and just be in the now and enjoy all we have and the loved ones that surround us.

This month we have included some traditional Irish traditions from Ireland and some highlights for over the Christmas season here in Ireland. Below is a Christmas blessing which we send to you all. Have a peaceful and safe Christmas.

An Irish Christmas Blessing

During the coming Christmas season
May you be blessed
With the spirit of the season,
Which is peace,
The gladness of the season,
Which is hope,
And the heart of the season,
Which is love.
