I found this article regarding a Robbie Burns Day event on the East Coast of Canada. Thought it looked like good fun … that is if you can ski, which I don’t because I’m rather pathetic at it. They do seem to be wearing jeans under their kilts … I am not sure how authentic that is although it is rather sensible.
