"Happy Tartan Day"
You'll need to sit back and relax, this one is gonna take a while, lol. April 6 has been declared National Tartan Day to recognize Scottish/Americans across our nation. And well, I'm also going to claim it to celebrate my affinity for tartan. I often wondered where my great love of these traditional clan plaids comes from. But, grandfather's from Scotland, so it might be genetic? lol.
