The Briercrest TESOL department held a really fun Scottish ceilidh as a fundraiser for their summer internships. A ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) is a traditional Gaelic social dance event. The dancing itself is much like square dancing. I took my wee Scotland-born lass with me, dressed in a kilt and matching shirt. She didn't feel comfortable participating with the dancing, but we enjoyed watching while we nibbled on shortbread and scones.
