This week’s inspirational post features a video taken by yours truly during a party we attended in the rugged islands of Scotland and has been making the rounds in a few Facebook groups.
Our wee boy loves music in general but is especially partial to the music played by Scottish cèilidh bands.
For those who don’t know, the word cèilidh is actually a Gaelic word that means “visit”. So, people go to visit someone or gather in a hall where they told stories or sing songs. They didn’t have to dance, though they could.
Now, the word usually refers to a traditional Scottish event that involves music, dancing and storytelling. There is great community spirit and everyone regardless of age is invited.
I mean, our son is three and he had the time of his life.
If you’re at all interested in Scottish culture, take a look at this video and enjoy!
It’s a bit late now for this year but not to worry, they’re both on (and partying hard every year in July).
Both will give you a taste of traditional Gaelic culture.
We’ll see you there!
