It’s National Tartan Day!
If you’ve got Scottish roots then it’s time to celebrate! April 6 is National Tartan Day, when people of Scottish heritage within the United States are celebrated for their contributions to the country.
Even if you don’t have Scottish roots you can still celebrate National Tartan Day by rocking your favorite plaid looks!
