The Clans and Tartans of Scotland by Robert Bain

April 6 - If you've got Scottish roots, or you're a self-proclaimed Scot-o-phile, then today's the day to celebrate! April 6 is the 15th-annual National Tartan Day, when the over 11 million people of Scottish and Irish heritage within the United States are celebrated for their contributions to the country. This date was chosen to commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath on April 6 in 1320, which asserted Scotland's sovereignty over English territorial claims.

The word kilt comes from the Scots word kilt, meaning to tuck up the clothes around the body. The Scots word derives from the Old Norse kjalta, from Norse settlers who wore a similar, non-tartan pleated garment.
