Christmas is one of our most cherished holidays and Irish Christmas sayings are some of our most cherished Irish expressions!
Familiarizing yourself with Irish Christmas sayings is a sure way to add life and cheer to your holiday season. Here is a small collection of our favorites.
We Irish have composed some really beautiful holiday quotes and blessings!
We use them on Christmas cards, in our e-mails or even when we are giving the people we love their Christmas presents.
Irish blessings focus on good luck, health, prosperity and harmony inside the family. Here is one of our favorites:
The light of the Christmas star to you
The warmth of home and hearth to you
The cheer and good will of friends to you
The hope of a childlike heart to you
The joy of a thousand angels to you
Love and God's peace to you

Christmas celebrations will be incomplete without some beautiful, traditional songs of the season. One of our favorites is: Love Came Down At Christmas.
Love came down at Christmas
Love, a lovely love divine
Love was born at Christmas
Stars and angels gave the sign
Love will be our token
Love be yours, and love be mine
Love from God to all of us
Love for plea and gift a sign
Love for the 10 commandments
Love for the 9 that dress so fine
Love for the 8 that stood at the gate
Love for the 7 who went up to Heaven
Love for the 6 that never got fixed
Love for the 5 that stayed alive
Love for the 4 that stood at the door
Love for the Hebrew children
Love from the little babe, baby

Irish Christmas limericks sum up the sense of humor and wisdom of the Irish people.
This Christmas, you can use limericks to demonstrate your love of Irish heritage and to spice up the festivities.
Memorize and share them, write them down and insert them in party favors, or choose you limericks for Christmas and have them printed on personalized greeting cards. Here is a fun one to consider:
The North Pole is bustle and noise
As Santa and those he employs,
Prepare for the day
By loading the sleigh
With gifts for good girls and boys.
