At this time of year, in Scotland, it's one large celebration. Us Scots don't pass up the chance for a party, and between the Christmas excitement, we also find time to celebrate St Andrews Day. Known as Scotland's national day, we hold a number of celebrations here. However it wasn't long before the rest of the world caught on, and St Andrew's day has become a worldwide celebration.
With Christmas coming, it's never to
early to prepare! Here in Scotland, Christmas dinner is one of the
highlights of the day. We go all out and ensure everyone is stuffed
full to the brim. We take pride in celebrating this magical time of
year, and this celebration of food is no different. What
better time to start thinking about how you will dress your table to
serve a traditional meal in true Scots style! Here, we look at 7
ways to add a touch of heritage to your Christmas dinner.
Halloween has passed and, as we tidy our costumes away for another year, we settle into November. Bonfire night is just around the corner, and what better time to dig out our winter wardrobe and get the chunky knits at the ready. As the autumn months begin to wane and we see the first signs of winter, it's the perfect time to don a chunky knit woollen jumper and hat and gather around the fire to celebrate Guy Fawkes night.
