What on earth is an English Ceilidh when it's at home?

I was always given to understand that a Ceilidh was traditionally a Scottish or Irish social gathering whose origins were in the Gaelic areas of Scotland and Ireland . A social visit that usually involved Gaelic folk music and dancing, either at a house party or a larger concert at a social hall or other community gathering place.
