In that fashion "Celtic Spirituality" remains unchanged...

With zeitgeist/fashion I meant Your original question: "Why are things Celtic easier to find than Persian, Egyptian, classic spirituality?"?

To be honest, I offered a ring bought from a museum-shop (must've been pewter or something) to a city, once: The Spirit of the Place was of suburbian kind to me, so I just left the ring on a wall next to a bus station - and never looked again! So, anything will be fine! I didn't want to change Your attitude.

I live in Canada, have celtic ancestry (french and scottish) but I'm not Native American (well, I do have some native americans ancestors but they're so far away I don't count them much), my roots lie in Europe not here. I think the Native Americans would rightfully be insulted if I were to get involved into their stuff when I'm not one of them, which is already happening. To me this was definitively the reason I got into celtic stuff.
how is it that the Celtic beliefs have become the backbone of Modern Paganry?
But is it all that different from the nearby "Germanic Spirituality" or "Nordic Spirituality"?
