Tartan Day, 6 April




 

I'd never heard of Tartan Day until recently. It commemorates the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath on 6 April 1320 during the Scottish Wars of Independence. It affirmed the Scots's right to independence of England.

The Declaration is believed to have considerably influenced the American Declaration of Independence.
