Blessings & Toast

Irish and Celtic blessings and toast were a large part of the celtic culture many year ago and are still a celebrated part of the celtic culture today. Irish and Scottish both used language as a gift to inspire and to lift one another up. There are so many blessigns and toast we could not list them all, but here are a few of our favorites from both Ireland and Scotland.

Celtic Blessings

May you both be blessed
With the strength if heaven,
The light of the sun and the
Radiance of the moon,
The splendor of fire,
The speed fo lightning,
The depth of the sea,
The swiftness if wind,
The stability fo earth,
And the firmness of rock.

Celtic Toast

Wishing you always walls for the wind,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
And the love and laughter of those you hold dear.
