St. Stephen’s Day Ceili

Annual St. Stephen’s Day  Ceili  Dec 26, 2018

As tradition has it in Ireland, St. Stephen’s Day, the day after Christmas, is the day the Wren Boys hunt a fake wren (king of the birds in Celtic mythology) and place it on top of a decorated pole. The wren boys or strawboys dress up in masks, straw suits, and colorful clothing and form music bands and parade through towns and villages – and we will gather and dance in Watertown  to keep the tradition alive!
