Much like the celebration of Hogmanay, Tartan Day is an event which proudly celebrates the Scottish heritage across the globe, on the 6th of April. This date marks the Declaration of Arbroath, which was signed in 1320. The current event stems from a celebration which originates in Canada from the 1980s but has spread to many communities in other countries, during the 1990s and 2000s. Tartan day typically includes pipe bands, highland dancing and other Scottish themed events in Canada, Nova Scotia, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Argentina. There are some incredible numbers in terms of Scottish decent. In Canada, 4.7 million people are from Scottish decent. 3 Million Australians claim their Scottish ancestry and a whopping 6 million Americans are from Scottish decent. So, as you can imagine, Tartan Day is a very special day in the Scottish calender.
