Good Morning, Scotland! Today we are going to gather around a nice cozy fire and tell stories! I say this because today is Tell a Story Day in the United Kingdom but seems to be predominantly celebrated in Scotland. The United States has a Tell a Story Day but it is celebrated on April 27th, precisely six months apart from the United Kingdom. Take what you will from that, it seems that there are still hard feelings there apparently.
I did find some discrepancies on the date of this National Day. There were a couple of sites that listed this day as being celebrated on October 25th and not on the 27th, but more websites were showing it as being on the 27th. So, that’s what we are going with today. Perhaps somebody in the U.K. can help me out with that. Which date is it?
So, gather around and start telling those stories everybody! What’s your favorite story that you were told as a child? Was it a book somebody would read to you at night? Or was it a story that was made up out of somebody’s imagination and only told in the oral tradition?
Please leave your comments below. Thank you for reading!
