Christmas; Christmas day, either alone or in expression n. ¤
mór great Christmas, in distinction from n. ¤ becc (stéille) little
Christmas (C. of the star), i.e. the Epiphany; in these expres-
85sions the adj. is often undeclined. Later n. ¤ becc came to be
used for the feast of the Circumcision (Jan. 1), as in the Book
of Common Prayer (editions of 1608, 1702); the term Nodlaig
Bheag is still current, being used in Munster of the Epiphany,
in Connacht and Ulster of New Year's day. i n-obli casc ┐
