With the skirling of pipes and the swirling of kilts, the 2017 Christmas Revels celebrates the turning of the year in Scottish style. Join the Revelers this December in the land of Robbie Burns to pass the shortest day in song, dance, and spirited folk tales. Be there for haggis and Hogmanay, first-footing, wool-waulking, mouth music, and the Scottish custom of Guising – going house to house disguised in fancy dress. Expect plaids a-plenty, as Scots of all ages gather the clans to observe the return of the sun in the Bay Area’s most treasured holiday tradition. This tuneful excitement comes studded with Revels touchstones including The Abbots Bromley Antler Dance, Sussex Mummers’ Carol, and The Lord of the Dance. Be prepared to sing and dance along, if you so desire.
