A Joyous St. Andrew's Day to You!

November 30th is St. Andrews Day, Scotland's official National Day. (St. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, you see.) So, in honor of our Scottish heritage & our tendency to celebrate a great many holidays, we'll be donning our kilts at the Eden home tonight, enjoying a hearty helping of Cock-a-Leekie Soup and downing an entire pan of shortbread.

For your listening pleasure, here's Flower of Scotland, the unofficial national anthem of Scotland, performed by The Pipes & Drums of Leanisch.

Yay shortbread! I'll bet the kilt feels more natural to you than the guys in your family. ;)

Mmmmm...a pan of shortbread. That's one tradition I wouldn't mind adopting.
