The twelfth and final day of Christmas, January 6th, is known in Ireland as Nollaig na mBan or Women’s Christmas or Little Christmas. On this day it is the tradition all around the Country for the women to get together and enjoy their own Christmas, while the men folk stay at home and handle all the chores.
