We are Celtic

It is important to me to introduce my sons to other cultures so we take them to parades, festivals, etc. But this last weekend we celebrated our own culture and heritage at the Bethlehem Celtic Classic Festival. The boys especially enjoyed the parade during which, Aidan pretended to play the bagpipes, and the sheepdog demonstrations.

I always enjoy the Irish dancers and the Massed Pipe Bands on Saturday evening.

Aidan marches with the massed pipe bands on the field.

My little lad, Shane.

Lowland lads may dress mair fine,
Woo in words mair saft than mine!
Lowland lads hae mair o' art,
A' my boast's an honest heart,
Whilk shall ever be my pride!
O row thee in my Highland Plaid.

~Robert Tannahill (my paternal ancestor from Paisley, Scotland)
