May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine on your window-pane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you. - Irish Blessing

Ceilidh

Céilidh (pronounced kay-lee) is a Gaelic word that literally means "kitchen party." Historically, Scottish céilidhs and Irish céilí's (pronounced the same) would include music, dance, stories, poems, and ballads. Musicians would join in an impromptu jam session. People would have a "party piece" ready to go for any céilidh that might pop up.

At Celtic Fest we have a CĂ©ilidh time after dinner. We'll have several Celtic sing-along songs, Celtic stories, plus poems and jokes that we'll be asking people (in advance) to share. It's all great craic (pronounced crack), which is Gaelic for fun.
