May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours.
This Irish blessing is perfect for the holidays, but also works well any time of year. It is written in the Insular Minuscule script, a script used only in Ireland and the British Isles in the early Middle Ages. The capital “M” and colorful designs in the empty spaces of the text are typical of decorations found in early medieval Irish manuscripts.
This text is written on archival white card stock–it would look beautiful framed, but the paper is thick enough that you could hang this directly on your wall. It measures 8″ x 8″.
