‘World wide Ceilidh’ launched to celebrate St Andrew’s Day
Scotland is inviting St Andrew’s Day fans across the world to don their kilts and enjoy a highland fling with friends at the world’s first online ‘World wide Ceilidh’.
The new online viral campaign on Scotland.org is jam packed with applications which allow St Andrew’s Day fans worldwide to give themselves a Scottish makeover. After kitting themselves out in a kilt and sporran, taking their online partner by the hand and dancing a Scottish ceilidh reel, St Andrew’s Day revellers can invite their friends and family to join in wherever they may be in the world.
Visitors to Scotland.org, Facebook and Twitter fans are amongst the first people who have already joined in the online fun. The official Gateway to Scotland website also includes a wealth of information to help people worldwide celebrate St Andrew’s Day.
Events are taking place throughout Scotland and worldwide in celebration of our national day and the Homecoming Scotland Finale celebrations.
Throughout 2009, Scotland has been celebrating the year of Homecoming and has welcomed thousands of visitors to the country. St Andrew’s Day marks the finale to Homecoming Year with over 40 events taking place throughout Scotland.
