I have to say that I really like the "reformed reconstructionist" idea.

I am more or less a "hard" polytheist who believes in most gods and goddesses out there, even Yahweh (although I'll admit my view of him is quite different from the norm... after all, he's just one out of many gods, and not one I'm particularly concerned with), but my attention all goes to the gods of Irish lore.

Standard reconstructionism isn't really my thing.  I like the idea, rather, of being a polytheist who is fairly consistent about where my gods that I honor come from and the culture that was/is tied to them, but I'm also 100% modern and don't limit myself to exactly what I read in the folklore in my spiritual practice.  It's not trying to pass fantasy off as reality, cultural imperialism, or anything like that.  I'm respectful, but I do what I do.

Lots of discussion about Celtic gods, folklore, culture, etc. would be great.  I definitely want to learn more, since I haven't read half as much as I would have liked to by now.  I'd also like to see a variety of practices people who honor Celtic gods have, whether those practices are strictly Celtic or not, and even just some general stuff about bringing the past into the present... what stays, what goes, and what other cultures have done over the years in places where monotheism never became dominant (like in parts of Africa and a lot of Asia, or even Native Americans).
