Day 4 Drawing

Today is Nollaig na mBan and the “official” end of Christmas. But what is Women’s Christmas? Here in Ireland, it’s a day for getting your decorations down and has long been recognised as a day for celebrating the contribution of Irish women to society. It started as a day of rest for many women after the Christmas rush and many would gather in pubs or homes while men stayed at home.

Instead of heading to the pub my Nollaig na mBan entailed going for a very leisurely breakfast with my daughter followed by a lovely walk in Howth with the two doggies. The drawing above is the lighthouse at Howth and the cutest lighthouse in existence I wager.  I always treat myself to some tuna steaks from one of the many fishmongers before returning home to take down the decorations.
