Tartan Day

Get your kilt on ... tomorrow is Tartan Day, April 6th.

GENTLEMEN - THE TARTAN
Here’s to it!
The fighting sheen of it,
The yellow, the green of it,
The white, the blue of it,
The swing, the hue of it,
The dark, the red of it,
Every thread of it.
The fair have sighed for it,
The brave have died for it,
Foemen sought for it,
Heroes fought for it.
Honour the name of it,
Drink to the fame of it -
THE TARTAN ! !
(Scots-Canadian poet Murdoch MacLean; from Celtic Guide, April 2013)
