Season’s greetings everyone!

We thought we would post a blog to spread the Christmas cheer, so here is a song to get to get you into the Christmas spirit.

Something to consider for all music lovers! – Who do you think will be Christmas number 1 this year?

Here at Toluna, we find the values of Christmas to be special and have great traditions

Christmas in Ireland is a truly magical season, bringing families & friends together. It is a tradition that has many much loved customs in Ireland. Such as decorating the tree together, carol singing, sending cards & children performing nativity plays.

Some of Irelands Christmas Traditions come from the Gaelic roots; one of the traditions is to place a candle in the window of the house on Christmas Eve.  This is lit by the youngest member of the family, to welcome Mary & Joseph. Another tradition in Ireland is the Holly wreath, placing the holly wreath on the door of the house.

A traditional Gaelic greeting for Merry Christmas is Nollaig Shona Duit

In Ireland Christmas dinner is eaten on December 25th. It is usually eaten with friend & family; it is usually a special day for most people in Ireland. In Ireland most people eat Turkey & other poultry. Most meals are served with gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, vegetables and a favourite brussel sprouts! Mince pies & Christmas pudding are also a popular choice in Ireland.

So with Christmas round the corner and preparations nearly complete, is there anything in particular you are expecting for Christmas this year?

The team here at Toluna would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.
