Irish Xmas Tradition
“A Light in the Window”
One old custom, that many continue to observe, is the placing of a candle in the window on Christmas Eve.
A symbol to welcome strangers and to remember those who are far away from home.
We are not entirely sure how well strangers dropping by for a visit would actually be welcomed, were they to take the symbol literally!
But the little lights shining in windows gives a warm and welcoming feel, when walking through an Irish town at Christmas time.
