Dublin: 15 °C Friday 24 September, 2021

There's only one word for this period on the festive calendar

One disgusting word.


THE TIME BETWEEN Christmas and New Year.

A strange time. A time of Pringles and Baileys and staying up until 4am and feeling like it’s never going to end while simultaneously hurtling rapidly towards New Year’s Eve.

It needed a name, and a name it has been bravely given.


Happy Taint, everyone.
