    or perhaps the more Festive, MacDonald of the Isles, Ancient...




    This in the US is referred to as the CHRISTMAS TARTAN, sold as 11 ounce wool blend at major fabric stores...



    This tartan does vary, but overall this is the Christmas Tartan.


    Merry Christmas....best of luck on your concert.

    Should it not be the Claus tartan?

    I've always found our Buchanan Modern to be festive.

    Any variant of Maxwell would likely suffice!

    ... as they're all pretty Christmas-y!

    Keep the antlers on the (rein)deer hide sporran?

    Just for the sake of discussion; Not sure I agree with "Christmas colours" tartans concept. Its unlikely there ever be a request for Holiday pants, so to me, any kilt with a nod to the seasons in accessories is the way to go (ok, maybe not the extremes posted by Steve). Maybe a lapel pin, a Christmas tie (colour or design), and perhaps red hose with green garter, or vice versa.

    However in my church blue is the colour of Advent.

    I had read somewhere that churches have long used the purple Lenten vestments, candles, etc for Advent out of convenience- maintaining three colours (green, purple, and white) is expensive enough without adding blue and red.

    Then there's pink!! Worn on Gaudete Sunday, on the same day the pink candle in the Advent wreath is lit. And black for All Souls Day.

    So for my church anyhow a fully Liturgical Kilt would have these colours:



    (I don't see Laetare Sunday above.)

    I wonder if you stretched out the pie chart above into a linear thing, would the resulting tartan would be any good?

    Byzantine rite?

    Our priest (episcopal church) wears pink (rose technically) on the third Sunday of advent but I think it’s optional.

    I think you’d go nuts trying to find a tartan that would cover all the liturgical seasons.

    At this time of year you could go with a Royal Stewart tartan kilt, although there’s alway the risk of looking like a Christmas tin of shortbreads....
