An Irish Easter blessing for you

"At the breaking of the Easter dawn
may the Risen Saviour bless your home
with grace and peace from above,
with joy and laughter, and with love
And when night is nigh, and day is done
Make He keep you safe from all harm."

Beannachtaí Ná Cásca oraibh!

May the blessings of Easter be upon you!

For a good article on Irish Easter traditions, see Bridget Haggerty's The dance of the Sun at dawn and a cake dance in the afternoon on the Irish Culture and Customs website. You might also enjoy Easter Saturday and Funeral for a Fish.

Blessings of Easter to you even though it is too late!

I hope you had an enjoyable day.
