I was born in Scotland but was brought to Canada over sixty years ago when my mother, a widow, married a Canadian. Landed in Halifax 7 Oct. 1947. By blood I'm a Scot but by culture, education, and language I'm more Canadian. I am beyond a doubt proud of my Scots heritage and in many respects I am torn between the love of both. The mortar that helps keep my perspective is I'm a Celt as my forfathers were. I consider myself bless by the Fates to have been raised in what I and a great many, many others consider the best place on Earth.

Camac.

I was born in Canada but consider myself a Celt and NOT a Canadian. The First Nations are Canadian the rest of us are just displaced. And being decended from Celts makes you a Celt.

I'm by blood a Celt or as near as you can get. Morison from Lewis Island outer Hebrides. Long story their but to sum it up.. Did not know my father who was born in Scotland. I was born in Canada and have lived in Ont, Sask, Ab, Nfld, and NS. Moving to Nova Scotia felt like coming home. I just fit in there... I had lived there for 3 years when I found out I was born a Morison. But I'm getting side tracked.
I am a first generation Canadian. My heritage is Scottish.
My native friends are Canadian with a First Nations heritage.
Lewis island is one of the last places where Gaelic is still spoken commonly but they are Scottish not Celtic. Folks from Italy are Italian not Roman. Folks from the Norway are Norwegian not Norse.
I agree having Celtic blood makes you a Celtic.... I have totally lost my train of thought

My great grandfather was from Guysborough NS. His family was Scottish as well as my great great gram. I also have Welsh in me going back 6 generations and going back even further, I've Breton. All that with English and Swedish married to an Arab. I take pride playing my pipes and I'm always inspired when I'm down home in Nova Scotia for the summer. It really brings out the Celt in me.

What part of Nova Scotia do you live in, b4u2? I'm in Guysborough Co., about dead centre between Antigonish and Guysborough (town).

It's always good to have another local around. smile.gif
