GUEST,Reiver 2 BS: Tartan Day (9) RE: BS: Tartan Day 20 Aug 03

I heard of it a few weeks ago here in AZ for the first time. As I remember it was mentioned as just a good excuse (not that any was required) for a get-together of Scots in order to enjoy good Scottish music, dance and drinks. It may be of quite recent origin... perhaps thought up by Scots who felt envious of the popularity of St. Patrick's Day for the Irish. If anyone knows any more about Tartan Day, please post. Is it celebrated in Scotland? I have a friend, Reiver 1, of Scots ancestry (but born a Liverpudlian and now living in Canada) who, when I wished him a "Happy Tartan Day," said he'd never heard of it. (He was glad to join me in celebrating it, nevertheless.)
