Today, is NOT a holiday.
But, to some people it is a special day.
What is it?
National Tartan Day!
Here is a link you can click on to read an article and understand about National Tartan Day: https://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/canada/tartan-day.
In case you weren't able to read about it, I decided I would share some of what was mentioned (I copied/pasted):
Tartans of all varieties are worn on Tartan Day, which recognizes and celebrates the contributions of Scots and their descendants in Canada on April 6.
Tartan Day celebrations include parades with pipe bands, highland dancing and sports, and other community gatherings with Scottish-themed events. While a variety of tartans are displayed, the maple leaf tartan is Canada’s official tartan.
Tartan Day is an observance and not a public holiday in Canada.
Most people do not know that Scottish people like to celebrate their heritage/inheritance.
By celebrating, many things are done.
Yes, Scottish clothing is worn.
And, many things are done including dancing... like we could see in that picture I posted.
Thinking about that, made me think of Ecclesiastes 3:4, "A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;".
Amen! A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;.
Yes, some days can be sad, but also can be happy days.
Just as National Tartan Day is... here in Canada.
So, if you have Scottish inheritance... I will wish you...
Happy Tartan Day!
Until Next time...
