1) Let’s blow some myths to pieces. #LáanDreoilín is a Pagan ritual where the wren is celebrated. But along came Christianity. “Quick! We need to abolish all of these Pagan practices and give them our own patriarchal twist,” said Christianity, not feeling at all threatened.
2) Birds hold a special place in Paganism, and in Celtic mythology the wren holds powerful sway. The word "dreoilín" (Irish for "wren") has its roots in the term "draoi éan"/“magical bird”. It was believed the wren acted as a messenger between this world and the next #Dreoilín
