I'm hoping to have some kind of posting schedule cobbled together for this blog by next week, but in the meantime I'd like to wish everyone a Happy Cinco de Mayo! For those of you who aren't aware of it, Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday that celebrates the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
May is a bittersweet month for me. My parents were married in May, and they both died in May. I like to think they planned it that way, but maybe that's just the romantic in me. I've been without them now longer than I was with them, but I still like to think of May as their month.
My mother was from the Maritimes and I suspect it's from her I inherited my love of Celtic music. I'd like to share a few of my favourite songs with you. I think she would have liked them too. :-)
Celtic Woman – the Voice
Mary Mclaughlin – Yundah
Rankin Family – Fare Thee Well Love
