Scottish Christmas Walk, Alexandria, VA

The weekend after Thanksgiving, I participated in the Scottish Christmas Walk in Alexandria. I marched with members of the Celtic Society of Southern Maryland and also the Anthropology Club of Calvert High School (see above). It was a cold and crisp day but sunny- great for wearing wool. The sounds of Bag Pipes and drums filled the air. In front of us in the parade, a couple of ladies played their fiddles and marched at the same time. The Honorable John Warner (Rep), senior senator from Virginia marched down the same street with us in his Scottish kilt and tartan.

Afterwards, our group of marchers retired to the Fish Market for some hot clam chowder.
