There is so much to write about when you think of Scotland. I could write about the culture, food or whiskey, or just the people and I would probably be typing out a blog post that may be uninteresting to some of you, as it would probably be closer to a book than a blog entry. There are many web sites that I could refer you to, just on Scotland's Genealogy, but that would take all the fun out of searching and finding it yourself!
In all truth, I haven't completed much research this week and feel like I have neglected my poor blog page. I had been trying to post daily on a variety of different topics, but not this week. In today's blog, I will be discussing some of the customs and traditions of my Scotland family.
Scotland clothing mainly features the tartan (or plaid), which is the traditional dress of the people. Some mainlanders' may think that a man wearing a "dress" is too feminine, therefore that makes the man wearing it, also more feminine. That is certainly not the case. It has more to do with tradition and their own culture than just flouncing around in a skirt all day, every day. The kilt is worn on special occasions much like our suit and tie events that we have in the United States. The Scots mostly wear these kilts to weddings and formal gatherings.
