A lost Scot in China!
Wow! I never knew this board existed! A new obsession, like I need one.
I am a Mac...Millan, Leod, and Neil. I mainly identify with the MacMillans since that was my maiden name.
I have attended several gatherings in North America and Scotland and really enjoy meeting other Scots from around the world. I have even found one here in China.
My dad looked awesome in his kilt. He had scrawny bird legs and looked hideous in shorts, but for some reason, the kilt was perfect.
At a gathering in Scotland, they made my Polish/German husband an honorary Scot. We haven't gotten him in a kilt yet. Can't get him in lederhosen either for that matter.
One of my favorite kilt memories was in Bali. We were having breakfast poolside when the very large Aussie came down to breakfast in nothing but his kilt. It was quite a sight and I enjoyed it immensely.

Cead mille failte!
Do a search here on the forum for the various Polish and German tartans - you'll be surprised!
Speaking of lederhosen, I had a pair when I was a wee'un. Great for playing in the woods - couldn't tear them if you tried.

Welcome to the forum. It takes awhile for some men to decide to wear a kilt. Give him time.

Wecome to the board!
Hopefully, you can get your husband in a kilt. And here's a way you can: Hide away his trousers and have a kilt laid out for him. Of course, this can lead to trouble - and trouble's my middle name (not really, but it could be). Though, the best method is to just ease him into the idea.
All in all, you're bound to learn something new everyday on this board. But most of all, have fun.

Hello and a warm Celtic cousin, from Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.
Go to the gallery part of the board, print some pictures of men in kilts and post them around the house. The next level of hinting usually requires the purchase of a thirty pound sledge hammer.
