    aah... ok, a little more research and it begins to make sense.

    yes it's the anagram - thanks dxhound2005.

    also because my knowledge of religious occasions is so bad...

    'January group visiting'

    - The Epiphany or Womens Christmas, which falls on January 6 celebrates the three wise men visiting Jesus!

    From Wikipedia :

    'Get Drunk'
    - "Today Irish women may spend the day shopping, take a meal at a restaurant or spend the evening at gathering in a pub"

    Ever so slowly i'm getting there!
