This week on the Home Show, it's December 26th, so we look at the St Stephen’s Day tradition, the Wren Day, that many homes will be celebrating today. Sinead Ryan is joined by Dr Aoife Granville of the Department of Folklore and Ethnology at UCC.

Street Art - We hear from two of the artists who brave the elements every Sunday in Dublin’s Merrion Square to sell you their paintings, artist Willie Redmond and Broadcaster and Artist Thelma Mansfield share their knowledge and experience!

Sofas - Our style guru Roisin Murphy will have her ultimate guide to picking out the ideal sofa for you as you go shopping in the Christmas sales.
