Active or not, this is a day to enjoy life
LA 'le Stiofan, or St Stephen's Day, is a day of much action for some people and a day of immobile relaxation for others.
Either way, it's about recharging our batteries and rebuilding reserves of shaken morale. It is an invaluable and blessed time and we would all do well to avail of it.
For the vast bulk of us, the past 12 months have been a struggle to meet commitments.
