On occasions it is spicy, other times witty, sometimes just side-splittingly funny!
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.
May your neighbors respect you, troubles neglect you, the angels protect you and heaven accept you.
May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night and the road downhill all the way to your door!
Bless your little Irish heart and every other Irish part!
