Please see this guest post from the Zorra Caledonian Society!
The Zorra Caledonian Society would like you to join us for a “Pub Night” with live music & a wee bit of Scottish fun on Saturday, April 1st, 2023, as we celebrate National Tartan Day!
A few fun facts:
- National Tartan Day originated in Canada in the 1980’s, when just over 15% of the population was of Scottish descent
- The date of April 6th was chosen as it was the day on which Scotland in 1320 became an independent country at the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath
- Every province and territory of Canada with the exception of Nunavut has its very own tartan & that Canada also has a national tartan
- 9,500 jobs in Scotland are provided by Canadian Companies
- Canada is a top 10 export partner for Scotland
- 5 million Canadians claim Scottish heritage
