Celtic New Year

Celtic New Year is something like Halloween, but more serious, a night when the veil between two worlds is lifted and ancestors may be in touch. On the next Hometown Alaska, we’ll learn about this tradition, and its 25th annual celebration in Anchorage, which is coming up, with members of the Irish and Scottish communities.
