Mainly relating to the culture, language, and society of the Celts. "Celt" apparantly came from the Greek term for "Secret People", since little was known of them, and still not very much is. Genereally known to be a tall race of people, their coloring ranged from dark-eyed and dark-haired to blue-eyed and fair-haired.

Having conquered most of Europe, and even terrorizing Rome itself at one point, this viscious race was highly advanced. Ironmaking, womyn having the same status of men, going nude into battle to discomfort the enemies.

Still, for all of their adavancements, their languages had become so varied that they could no longer understand each other. When the German peoples attacked and defeated Rome, they also defeated the Celts...

Only In Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, and Brittany, France do the Celts survive.

First things first:

1) Its pronounced Kel-tic not Sel-tic (unless you're reffering to the Scottish soccer team or the U.S. basketball team)

2) Whoever wrote the definition that says the celts were 'the white race in ancient times' is a frickin MORON!!!! Yes, The Celts lived in France... but they were driven west by THE FRANKS! (d'oh) Yes, the celts lived in England...but they were driven west and north by the ANGLES and the Saxons! There are tons of 'white people' who don't descend from the celts at all i.e. the germans, italians, english, spanish, dutch, finnish, norwegians, swedes, dannish, russians, polish, and pretty much every other 'white' group other than the six celtic nations! That person really needs to learn their history cuz they don't have a f'''ing clue what Celtic means! (:

Now for the actual definition: There are six 'Celtic' Nations: Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, and the isle of Man. The Celts have a unique culture and their languages (although endangered) ring with a unique poetry that often contains an element of the tolkienesque. The republic of Ireland is the only independent Celtic state. There are two main linguistic sub-groups within the 'Celtic' cultures:
Brythonic Celts: The Welsh, Cornish, and people from the Bretagne penninsula
Goidelic(Gaelic) Celts: The Irish, The Scots and the Manx.
Moron: The Celts were the White race in ancient times!

Irish Celt: Pogue ma thone! we have nothing to do with those fricken sasenachs! (Sasenach being the Irish and Scottish gaelic word for a "Saxon" or Englishman. The English are NOT Celtic. They are Anglo-Saxons!

let's try Kel-tic

Celtic culture had tribes all over Europe. They are an ancient people and/or their desendants, and some people who choose to follow Celtic Paganism also sometimes refer to themselves as Celtic. The word celtic could also be the language, the artwork, the spirituality,etc.
They were refered to as "the people from out of the darkness", because people knew nor understood anything of their language, culture, or spiritual beliefs and traditions. Much less where they came from, only that it was from somewhere out of Ireland.
Some celtic traditions live on today with a bit of variation from the original rituals, such as Halloween, which was Samain.

Made the Uefa cup final in 2003 and somehow managed to take 50,000,000 fans along. Awarded the fair play award for no arrests and also won the nobel prize for turning 30,000 people into 50,000,000 using a device now known as the Seville Calculator.

I challenge you to find a Celtic fan who wasn't in Seville

slang term for marijuana, originated in eastern MA. the celtics symbol, a green clover, is somewhat similar to the marijuana leaf, so there... when making a deal for some green, you say you want some celtics tix, the dealers then says a row number (price) and seat (amount in grams or fractions of an ounce, you decide)
other vocab:
red sox-meth
Johnny Pothead: Hey man, I need some celtics tix. U got any??

Additionally, many historians and linguists believe that the Basque people of northern Spain and Portugal are also Celts -- base on their language, music and culture. Additionally, the Irish occasionally refer to themselves as the decendants of the Sons of Mil -- who came from Spain. So it's very likely that the Celts came from Greece via Spain -- and left a tribe there.
The Basque language is most likely Celtic in origin.
