Bag Cover
"This is an excellent bag cover, the materials are top notch and sizing was PERFECT unlike other covers I've played on. The bag has a zipper along the bottom, which is great since I play a Ross canister bag, and has velcro closure on the back, which keeps the bag's zipper out of view, and helps give the cover a really sharp look. After putting it on my pipes it felt like I was playing a whole new instrument, as slipping problems that I'd had with my last cover were eliminated (thanks to the added dycem patch, which I strongly recommend ordering the cover with) allowing me to play with much less effort. I'd recommend these covers to any player at any level, and I plan to play only Highland Gear covers in the future.

Celtic Christmas

11 Celtic Christmas Themes

Since its early beginnings the Celtic Christian Church drew inspiration on the pagan traditions of the past. Many of our present day customs have their roots in the druidic or Wiccan rites of long ago.

The winter solace starts on the 21st December and is the shortest day in the year. Pagans believed in holding a festival of the sun to encourage its return and bring good fortune and bountiful crop with it. Accompanying this were a number of practices still very much in evidence today over the festive season.

There are so many ways to add a Celtic flair to your holiday season- Yule logs, Holly, Mistletoe, Advent Wreaths, Candles, Catching the Wren, Hogmanay, Little Christmas, Celtic Knots, Christmas Cake, and First Footing.

Find out about these Celtic Christmas Traditions and their meanings.
