A party that involves old-school Scottish country dancing.
A Sub-Trope of Dances and Balls. Scotland is land of many proud and slightly quirky traditions. One of these is the céilidh (pronounced "kay-lee"), which is the name given to a party that involves Scottish country dancing. Usually takes place at weddings but can happen at other social functions. Music's usually provided by a band with accordions, fiddles and drums. If there are a lot of newbies present, someone from the band will usually call out instructions. Céilidhs are still popular in Real Life, with most Scottish kids being taught the dances at school from the age of about six or seven onwards, usually at Christmas time.
