Tartan Day

If you're like me, you had no idea there was such a thing as Tartan Day. Ever since Evan started playing bagpipes I have been exposed to all varieties of Scottish holidays/celebrations that I had no idea even existed. This past weekend Evan played his pipes with the band at the state capital to celebrate Tartan Day. I, for the second year in a row, got to watch the festivities.



For those of you that are wondering, but don't want to follow the above link, Tartan Day is a celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320 declaring Scottish independence. There you have it.
