“While Santa keeks doon frae the mantle above,

 the Yule log crackles oan this Christmas Nicht,

 waurmin’ hearth an’ hame by burnin’ sae bricht.

 We coorie thegither, my wife an’ I,

 voicin’ oor thouchts aboot the day ganged by.

 A’ wheest in the daurk we savour oor love.”

Tartans for the Season of Santa!

 

In Scotland the period over Christmas was once known as the Yules, a time of extended feasting and celebration. This idea is reflected in names like Nollaig mhòr, ‘Big Christmas’ – given to Christmas Day – and Nollag bheag, ‘Little Christmas’ or ‘New Year’s Day’. Other traditional names for the season allude to the light it brings to hearth and home such as Oidhche Choinnle , ‘Candle Night’.

 

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
