Burns Night is a very proud time of the year for Scottish people, as they celebrate one of the most iconic figures of their national heritage.
(PRWEB UK) 22 January 2013
While many people like to celebrate Burns Night in the most traditional sense with the addressing of the haggis and belting out Auld Lang Syne, other true Scots also see January 25th as an opportunity to celebrate this national institution by dressing up in good-humoured Scottish fancy dress, according to allfancydress.com.
The Essex-based fancy dress retailer has revealed it is experiencing increasing sales of tartan kilts, hats and Braveheart-style costumes that many proud Scots are keen to wear on one of the most important dates in the Scottish calendar.
Mark Heaton, of All Fancy Dress, said: “Burns Night is a very proud time of the year for Scottish people, as they celebrate one of the most iconic figures of their national heritage.
“Scotland is one of the proudest nations on the planet and partygoers like nothing more than displaying affection for their roots than by dressing up in tartan kilts and sporrans in true Highlander spirit. Certainly over the last week we have experienced growing sales of Burns Night products.”
AFD offers outfits for the ladies, not just those Braveheart wannabees, with costumes modelled on Disney’s favourite Scottish character, Merida from the hit-film Brave.
Indeed All Fancy Dress is one of the largest stockists of fancy dress outfits for a variety of themes, boasting over 3,000 different costumes and complementary accessories suitable for any themed night or event.
