Irish Women’s Little Christmas
The day is January 6, 2015. After much ado, the twelve days of Christmas have successfully been budgeted, baked, wrapped, roasted, bustled, decorated, negotiated, and wined into submission. In wee Ireland, upon the completion of these tasks, the lady of the house goes out to celebrate. It is the Feast of the Epiphany and the official end of Christmas. The twelfth day has finally arrived.
For many decades in the century past, an Irish woman would drape her woolen shawl over her shoulders and walk to the local public house. Along the way, she teamed up with other ladies for the evening. Participants relaxed and let the weight of the past weeks dissolve away.
Ladies, enjoy this Irish tradition by stopping by the Shamrock Restaurant, located at 7701 Fitzgerald Road, along Route US 15, just outside of Thurmont, on January 6. Enjoy live music, a special ladies menu, and complimentary corned beef.
