Today is the official launch of Gaelic Awareness Month in Nova Scotia! Actually, the month of May is Gaelic Awareness Month, but it’s kind of nice to kick it off a bit early because there will be a lot of competition in the news with the Wedding & Election coming up on either side of the weekend…
Obviously, I’m pretty excited about Gaelic Awareness Month, since it will be a great opportunity for me to participate in several activities and meet new people in the community. But I am also excited because I’ll be able to get all overly-enthusiastic about Gaelic in public with the excuse that it’s Gaelic Awareness Month, so people will understand if I’m a little weird. Little do they know that the enthusiasm is here to stay, long after May has come and gone.
As you can imagine, Gaelic Awareness Month is a great thing for my new blog! You can expect various posts themed around different types of Gaelic-related awareness, starting with this one.
For example, did you know that May is Gaelic Awareness Month? I didn’t, until I arrived in Nova Scotia a few weeks ago. I also discovered that Gaelic Awareness Month has apparently been happening for 15 years! You see, we are more aware already. It’s that easy!
