For the thousands of Irish emigrants around the world who won’t be coming home for Christmas, Generation Emigration would like to offer you the opportunity to send a Christmas message home through the blog. It can be addressed to anyone you like: friends, family, Ireland, politicians or bankers… and can be heartfelt or funny, serious or satirical – just post your greeting in the comments section below to share with the world.

Feeling creative? You can send your message in the form of a photo, drawing, or on film if you wish – just upload the clip to YouTube or Vimeo and email the link or image to us and we’ll upload it to the blog.

A selection of greetings will be published in the Life and Culture section of The Irish Times on Friday 23rd, so get writing!
