Irish Cream Brownies

Irish Cream Brownies are a traditional food in Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Celtic is spoken in these areas. However, it was much more popular two thousand years ago than it is today. After several invasions that resulted in the Celts losing much of their territory, the language began to 'die'. Now there are efforts to revive the language starting by having the language taught in schools, and many commodities and services are required to speak and write in Celtic.

Norwegian Vs. Danish

When Norway was under Danish rule the citizens were forced to learn Danish and that became the official language. Now, after their independence, the people are beginning to write in Norwegian again. This has created conflict between the people related to nationalism, rural vs. Urban, dialect vs. standard language, and spelling reform.
