Happy Women's Christmas Ladies!

Today, the 6th December, is traditionally recognised as Women's Christmas in Ireland. It may sound a tad old fashioned but it is a day when women are supposed to leave all the housework to the men and sit down and relax or indeed head out and party as so many do. I do believe it is still true to say that most of the restaurants and bars especially in Cork and Kerry see a lot more women heading through their doors to be wined and dined on this very day.

I remember as a little child my mom telling me it was a day that she could (or perhaps more correctly, should) get to have a little rest after all the extra entertaining, cooking and baking that Christmas had brought with it. I always remember thinking what a nice idea it was and how much my mom deserved it. I guess times have changed a lot now though and not all the extra work required at Christmas falls to the woman of the family anymore but this still won't stop me liking this tradition as outdated as it may seem. So Happy Woman's Christmas to all you wonderful ladies out there, take it as an excuse to get a take away at the very least tonight :).

Coco the Chihuahua wishes you a Happy Women's Christmas!
