Tartan Day coming April 6th

National Tartan Day will be here agin on April 6. The anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath (1320) has been used by numerous groups and societies throughout Canada and America to celebrate their Scottish roots.

On December 19th 1991, in response to action initiated by the Clans & Scottish Societies of Canada, the Ontario Legislature passed a resolution proclaiming April 6th as Tartan Day, following the example of other Canadian provinces.

America followed suit on March 20th 1998, when Senate Resolution 155 (S.Res. 155), proposed by US Senate Republican majority leader Trent Lott, was passed unanimously.

So it's official! Celebrate your Scottish roots, or just celebrate! See our Tartan Day Gift Package. A red plaid bandana and a CD of Bagpipe music for only $5.00!
