Hi Lonnie,

Welcome to The Wild Geese. Would you like to get involved?

We are working on a collection of short articles about Irish Christmas Traditions, and we need your help. Would you be willing to tell us about the history behind one of these customs? We'd also love to know about your personal experiences with the custom, if applicable. Choose one from this list, or suggest another Irish Christmas Tradition:

Women's Christmas / Nollaig na mBean

Christmas Day Swim

Pre-Christmas cleaning

Christmas Crackers

The Wren (taken)

Candle in the Window (taken)

Midnight mass

Please email me at Kelly@thewildgeese.com if you'd like to participate. Thanks so much!

Professional Book Reviews below

“That’s Just How It Was is a moving family tale through which much can be gleaned about life during the push for Irish independence… This is a satisfying, emotionally involving read.”- Clarion Review

“Authors of family memoirs often overload their narratives with minutiae that puts nonfamily members to sleep. There are no such encumbrances in Mary Thorpe’s biography of her remarkable grandmother, Bridget O’Rourke. Thorpe…carefully blends Bridget’s story with the events of her day, some of the most pivotal events in Ireland’s history.”- Blueink Review

“Thorpe compellingly incorporates history into her grandmother’s story, always making sure to bring the narrative back to Bridget’s life and personal experience ….. a compelling story of a strong, capable woman and the history that surrounded her “.- Kirkus Review ­
