Cèilidh Oidhche Shamhna
Sunday, 28 October
DiDòmhnaich, 28mh An Dàmhair
3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Tri uairean feasgar – Sia uairean feasgar
We will be in a private home in Towson. Directions provided upon RSVP.
Tha am foghar ann a bheireas an samhradh gu crìch agus a dh’fhosglas an geamhradh. (The autumn is here which brings the summer to an end and opens the winter.)
A new year in the Celtic calendar is upon us, and we are gathering with song, story, food, and drink to welcome Oidhche Shamhna (Halloween/Eve of November) in the warm, convivial environment.
Thigibh ann cuide ruinn! (Join us!)
Aig a’ chèilidh (At the céilidh)
- Gaelic Immersion session – Build your Gaelic through conversation
- A History of Halloween – A presentation and discussion by Scott MacIlleMhoire (Morrison) on the lore, origins, and history of what we today call Halloween. What could be better as we approach Oidhche Shamhna and the veil between the worlds is thinnest?
- Sharing of songs, stories, music, and poetry – Learn some songs as we sing together and bring your own tunes, poems, stories or songs to share (in Gaelic or otherwise). Some will reflect the time of year and the Gaelic traditions of the season.
Our céilidhean are rooted in the traditional Highland céilidh as an intimate, informal gathering where stories, poems, songs, news, and more are shared; good food and drink are partaken of; and the craic is always good.
If you are interested in Gaelic culture and language, we would love for you to come. You do not have to be a participant in any of our study groups (though you are very welcome to join). We will be practicing our Gaelic, but everyone will feel comfortable, whether you have any Gaelic or not.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Chì sinn uile aig a’ chèilidh sibh! (We’ll see you all at the cèilidh)
Happy Halloween to you all
