Celtic Festival

This past weekend, our town had a Celtic festival. I was really looking forward to it as I have fond memories of Scotland. After we lived in England, we moved to Scotland for three years. I love the sound of bagpipes, and I miss hearing them more often. When we lived in Scotland, I took Highland dancing lessons, and adored them. I haven’t really danced since then, but that was definitely a highlight for me. The festival was really nice as it brought back some great memories. My brother even plays the bagpipes a bit, so now I need to convince him to give the kids some lessons. It was a really hot morning, but we all had fun. I must admit, I teared up a bit when they played Amazing Grace on the pipes and drums, it gets me every time. I know lots of towns in the States have Celtic festivals, so if your town has one and you’ve never been, give it a go. You’ll have fun, I promise.
