Gaelic Nova Scotia Month

May is Gaelic Nova Scotia Month.  In the Gaelic calendar, May month is the beginning of the summer season. One third of Nova Scotians can trace their roots back to Islands and Highlands of Scotland. Today, Nova Scotia is the only region outside Europe where Gaelic language, culture, and identity continue to be passed down through the generations, and where Gaelic is spoken as a community language.
