Today, April 6th, is celebrated as Tartan Day.
This holiday commemorates America’s Scottish heritage, from the colonization of the New World to the Declaration of Independence and beyond.
I first learned of Tartan Day some years ago at the North Carolina Renaissance Faire, and the idea intrigued me.
If the Irish get St. Patrick’s Day, surely the Scots merit notice as well? 🙂
So wear a kilt, toss a caper, listen to bagpipe music, and add lots of interjections like “Och!” to your speech randomly today, and you’ll be good.
