Easons are selling 100% recyclable Folens annuals and the nostalgia is real

James Fenton

Spraoi, Súgradh, Siamsa, Sonas – they’re all here!

We’re told to enjoy our schooldays because they’re the best days of our lives but nobody ever really believes it until the cold, harsh reality of adulthood smacks us square in the face as soon as we leave the school gates forevers.

It was a more innocent time when Christmas was regularly the most exciting period of the year and a major part of that was when we were given the Folens Annuals by our teachers.

The Folens Christmas Annuals have been going for 49 years now and are still bursting with quizzes, activities, games and stories and this year you can relive it all because Easons are selling them all for just €4 each.

While they’re worth buying purely for the nostalgia, they’d be great to have over Christmas for any little ones in your house. If you’re too long out of primary school to remember, Súgradh is suitable for children of junior and senior infants age, Spraoi will suit first and second class, Siamsa is aimed at third and fourth class, and Sonas should keep kids of fifth and sixth class age entertained throughout the Christmas holidays.

It also should be noted that all editions are 100% recyclable and come with a free Christmas pen or pencil. Plus, that ‘new book’ smell is sure to transport you straight back to your childhood.

If you want to be showered with nostalgia this festive season, you can get your hands on the 2019 Folens Annuals here.
