One of the things I love about living in a city like Baltimore is that you continually see unexpected things. As we were leaving breakfast this morning, we heard bells pealing and bagpipes playing in the distance.
Today is St. Andrew’s Day, the national holiday of Scotland which is celebrated all over the world on November 30th. One of the churches in downtown Baltimore had a special service this morning in commemoration of the day. This was homecoming year for Scots all around the world to visit their homeland.I spent a lot of time in Scotland when I lived in the UK and even considered living in Edinburgh, which is a wonderful city. My family has a lot of Scottish roots, so I feel very connected to the country. Plus, there’s nothing like a man in a kilt! For a great Scot, check out fellow blogger Scot Meacham Wood who writes The Adventures of TartanScot.
Here’s a little video I took of the pipers parading through Baltimore this morning.
