Little Christmas (Irish: Nollaig na mBan) is one of the traditional names in Ireland for 6 January, which is also widely known in the rest of the world as the Feast of the Epiphany. It is sometimes thoughtthat it is called this because under the older Julian calendar, Christmas Day celebrations fell on that day whereas under the Gregorian calendar it falls on 25 December. However the eastern tradition of celebrating the birth of Jesus on 6 January precedes the creation of the Gregorian calendar by hundreds of years. By the year 1500 AD eastern Churches were celebrating Christmas on 6 January and western churches were celebrating it on 25 December even though both were using the Julian calendar. It is the traditional end of the Christmas season and until 2013 was the last day of the Christmas holidays for both primary and secondary schools in Ireland.
