Needless to say, Irish humor does not hold back when it comes to Christmas.
To make your seasonal celebrations even more enjoyable, try one of these!
May the Lord hold you in his hands and never clench his fist too tight.

Our Irish ancestors were wise folk, and they have created a lot of wonderful proverbs throughout the years. Some of these are perfect for Christmas because of the spiritual and life-shaping, such as love, family and wisdom.
A Turkey never voted for an early Christmas.
Hope is the cure for all misery.
Good times, good friends, good health to you and the luck of the Irish in all that you do.
Christmas celebrations will be incomplete without some beautiful, traditional songs of the season. Here are the lyrics to a very popular Irish Christmas song that you can
learn for an extra-special and beautiful seasonal celebration:
Love Came Down At Christmas
Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas,
Star and angels gave the sign.
Worship we the Godhead,
Love Incarnate, Love Divine;
Worship we our Jesus:
But where-with for sacred sign?
Love be yours and love be mine,
Love to God and all men,
Love for plea and gift and sign.
