There’s a lot to love about Christmas, and you can understand why it’s so many people’s favourite time of year. That said, the day itself can get a little bit boring, can’t it?
As much as we love putting the feet up to watch Christmas movies and eating selection boxes for breakfast, the real fun always takes place on December 26th. St Stephen’s Day has all the pros of Christmas (many of your mates are off work, turkey sambos, and festive tunes, etc.), but without any of the sentimentality or arguments with your second cousin over who should get the remote.
It’s the greatest day of year to meet up with your mates and have a bit of craic. With Leopardstown racing on the cards, not to mention all of the footballing action and sales taking place, you won’t be short on things to do.
Basically, if Christmas Day is all about spending time with family, the St Stephen’s Day is all about spending time with the family you choose – your mates!
That’s certainly what Irish music icon Ronan Keating believes. A man who knows exactly how much of a rollercoaster life can be, and how we’ve just got to ride it, he recently teamed up with Rockshore to celebrate the greatest day of the year, December 26th with a brand-new festive song called Most Wonderful Time for a Beer.
It’s Ronan as you’ve never seen him. He’s well able to have the craic about his own career, not to mention that infamous 1993 Late Late Show performance (look it up on YouTube, it’s infinitely worse than you remember) with Boyzone!

If you’re still not convinced that December 26th is the true beginning of Christmas, here are five reasons why it is the greatest day of the year:
- Heaps of leftovers in the fridge ready for the picking.
- Pubs are back open for you to meet up with your mates for a Rockshore.
- There’s more sport on TV than most other days of the year.
- No one will hand you a gift set of deodorant and expect you to smile.
- Some of the best sales of the year take place on St Stephen’s Day.
Now if you’re still on the fence, just ask yourself one question. If December 26th isn’t the most wonderful time for a beer, then when is?
