After the New Year and right up until the Epiphany we like a cup of warm eggnog before bed. Sometimes we add a smidgen of brandy or rum and always some grated nutmeg.
It's a nice little reminder of the holidays and eases us back into the real world.
Kathleen over at Purple Flowers mentioned leaving her holiday decorations up until "Little Christmas". I wasn't familiar with this so I googled it. The very short story is apparently Little Christmas falls on the Epiphany-January 6th. Celebrated everywhere~ but in Cork, Ireland it's quite the holiday. Women celebrate by going out with women friends, Sisters, Mothers, Aunts, Grandmothers. If you have any other information on this fabulous holiday-please do share. I love the idea of women going out and celebrating Little Christmas.
