How To Say – “Santa Claus” in the Irish Language (VIDEO)

Some people see the Winter holidays as the perfect opportunity to buy gifts for their loved ones, others just focus on having a traditional Christmas. Remember the joy you felt when Santa Clause brought you the Christmas presents? We also have more Christmas in the Irish language.

When you’re a kid, it’s inconceivable to have a Christmas without Santa and presents. As an adult, even if the meaning of Santa Claus changed over the years, you still feel that general joy that comes with the Winter holidays. Offering and receiving presents gives us more faith in ourselves, our loved ones, and why not – in humanity.

This Winter you have the chance to get in touch with your Irish heritage by learning a ‘bitesize’ portion of Irish Gaelic. Watch the following pronunciation video and learn how to say “Santa Claus” in Irish. (By the way, depending on where you’re from you might say “Gaelic” or “Irish Gaelic”. We just say “Irish” or “The Irish Language”.)
