An Irish Blessing at Christmas

May peace and plenty be the first
To lift the latch at your door.
And happiness be guided to your home
By the candle of Christmas.

God's blessings and peace be yours throughout this New Year

Back Text:

The Irish initiated the tradition of putting a one-week candle called coinneal mùr na Nollaig, or great Christmas candle in the windows of their homes. According to tradition, the candle served as a symbol of welcome to Mary and Joseph who sought shelter on that first Christmas Eve.
