Dear Members,

The above Celtic-inspired graphic is used courtesy of “Irish American Mom.” Several years ago, this blog published an interesting piece on traditional Irish folk beliefs for New Years and New Year’s greetings in the Irish language, including sound file recordings. We are pleased to share this article and hope you enjoy it:
