Do you know what Victoria Day and the Bagpipes have in common?
Victoria Day is a holiday in Canada originally celebrating the birthday of Queen Victoria. Over time it has become the official birthday of the reigning sovereign of Canada. (Parts of Scotland also celebrate the day). In 1904 it was declared Empire Day throughout the British Empire (later renamed Commonwealth Day).
So how does this tie into the Bagpipes? While visiting one of her nobility, Queen Victoria discovered that noble had his own piper, and she greatly liked the idea. Shortly thereafter, the position of Piper to the Sovereign was created as a member of her household.
In honour of Victoria Day, we are pleased to offer specials on Bagpipes and bagpipe related items. See our online shop for discounts on Bagpipe and related items!
