Not too long till Christmas. Can’t wait.
Let’s buy Irish and buy local when we can.
I’ve added Buy Christian since it is Christmas after all.
For those of us that will be gifting this Christmas, Have ye any suggestions to support Irish manufacturers who support Irish jobs and Christian values?

A slaughtered whole lamb from Irish home producers. A great gift. For me anyway

I'm sorry. I don't buy this.
I make no effort to Buy Irish.
Why should I?
The Irish employers make no effort to Hire Irish.
Buy an Irish article, made and sold by Paks and Poles?
Nope.
I think you’re missing the point of the thread TW. It thanks for the chance to explain .The point is to identify Local Irish gift producers who have a Christian ethos.

I usually buy a lot of books by Irish authors. Books on Irish legends and fairy tales are great gifts for younger family members. Beyond that I do my best to give my custom to small businesses. Excellent thread by the way. Collectively we have massive power to support our culture ,heritage and create an economy that supports our people through our wallets.

Why dont you all buy nothing except a bit of food for the 25th and sod off to all the producers of anything. We all have far too much of everything - tell your family you are giving your present money to yourself i.e saving in case there is no pension money when you retire at the new pension age of 90 years due to the huge population now in ireland.

To be fair, money may be the best thing to give if your talking about a gift that requires money. There are a lot of gifts that don't require money, one is your time alone, the ultimate gift regards it being a limited resource of you, ye can also try make something with your own two hands as a gift. Either way we should do our best to remove ourselves from the consumerist aspect that has been enforced on Christmas where we can and reflect more on family and friends and the occasion. How about wash the dishes after, or set the table at the Christmas dinner, or even help cook the dinner :).
