I’ve always thought of it as quite a healthy thing that people in Scotland really don’t do anything to celebrate St Andrew’s Day. I can understand that if you are a Scot but you aren’t lucky enough to be living in Scotland then you would want to do something to mark the day. Scots always become much more Scottish when they aren’t in Scotland, have a look here if you want to see some news about up and coming events and Scottish music, recipes, pipers, Alex Salmond and the like.
The year 2014 is apparently a Homecoming year, when people of Scottish descent are encouraged to visit Scotland, this is a fairly new concept I think there has just been one previous Homecoming year. I find it a wee bit strange as I think people should be encouraged to visit Scotland any time.
Anyway, it was a quiet day in Kirkcaldy, no doubt there were ceilidhs in Dubai!
