Some Scottish Customs and Traditions are important to us and some are marked every year in our diaries.
St Andrews Day - is celebrated on 30th November every year. I have to say I don't think we make as much of this as I think we should.
Christmas Traditions - a Scottish Christmas is very similar to Christmas throughout the world.
Hogmanay and New Year - Ah! Here we Scots have our very own unique Hogmanay Customs.
The practice of 'First-Footing' and having a Ceilidh is still so popular today and of course the singing of Auld Lang Syne has been one that has been adopted throughout the world.
Burns Night - the 25th January is the day where Scots throughout the world celebrate the life and work of our famous poet Rabbie Burns with a Burns Supper.
Valentine's Day - is on 14th February. It is interesting to note that the remains of St Valentine are believed to be in Glasgow. Learn a bit more about Valentine's Day in Scotland.
Mothers' Day or Mothering Sunday" is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent (exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday) in Scotland and the rest of the UK. See how Mothers' Day in Scotland developed.
Easter - is celebrated here as it is in every Christian country, so it can hardly be described specifically as ourely Scottish Customs and Traditions.
One tradition, however, is to have a special family meal on Easter Sunday, the main course almost always being roast lamb.
