And here's an Irish Blessing for the New Year! (translated from Gaelic!)

Good health, every day, whether I see you or not!
May your cup overflow with health and happiness.
May all your days be happy ones.
Merry Solstice and a Happy New Year!

Slàinte maith, h-uile latha, na chi ‘snach fhaic!
Gun cuireadh do chupa thairis le slainte agus sonas.
A h-uile là sona dhuibh ‘s gun là idir dona dhuib.
Nollaig Chridheil agus Bliadhna mhath ùr!



"In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship and never in want."


The Magic of Solstice lingers on

Though childhood days have passed

Upon the common round of life

A Holy Spell is Cast
(old verse)
