Celtic New Year

As you slide down the bannister of life, may all the splinters face the right way.

Today is considered by many the Celtic New Year. If my Irish ancestored maternal grandmother were alive, she'd be part of the Red Hat Society and out celebrating.

In honor of this time, I'm going to be sharing videos by a Newfoundland band, Great Big Sea. These lads know how to make music and enjoy life. The first one is a glorious craic between Great Big Sea and the Chieftains and a second for my grandmother's memory. Take a listen, go out and raise a pint or two in honour of her on this All Souls Day.
