Did You Know...?
...That wearing a kilt would get you arrested?
Yes -- but that was in 1746! By decree of King George, Highland dress was outlawed by the passing of the Dress Act, with the intent of suppressing highland culture. A first offense was a six-month in prison sentence; second offense was a seven-year exile to a work farm. The ban remained in effect for 35 years. Let's celebrate the lifting of the ban in 1781. Come dressed in your best Scottish tradition and you'll be eligible to win the "Best Costume" award.
