What can you do on Nollaig na mBan to support Breast Cancer Research?
Nollaig na mBan (Women’s Little Christmas)
Nollaig na mBan, or Women’s Little Christmas, is an old Irish tradition celebrated on January 6th each year, originally created as a day where women got together for a much needed rest after the stress of the Christmas season. This year, we are asking ladies to get together on January 6th to celebrate the end of the Christmas while helping to raise funds in support of Breast Cancer Research.
