Today is International Bagpipe Day

International Bagpipe Day
Today we are celebrating a musical instrument everyone loves: Bagpipes!

Bagpipes are best known in Ireland and Scotland, but are actually believed to have originated in Egypt in 400 B.C. These days, bagpipes have become so popular in America that there are actually more bagpipe bands in the US than in Scotland. Bagpipes are used in funerals for firefighters and police to signify the loss of a fallen comrade. Today we bring you three sapphic books with main characters from Scotland.

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!

Do you enjoy all the features I Heart SapphFic brings you each week? Elevating sapphic literature is our passion, but it takes a lot of resources to keep this site running. Please consider supporting our efforts via Buy Us A Coffee!
