And how legit is it for Glaswegians?

(I knew Scots from the Hebrides, so obviously I knew the stereotypes weren't legit for all of Scotland ;) )

I suppose they think you've been spending more time on the Wikipedia for some obscure Uralic language I've never heard of, than everyone else combined has been spending on the English-language Wikipedia (even if we only count the time you've been on Vancouver Island :lol: !)

Very legit in fact. Shows like Rab C Nesbitt and Still Game portray this well, though more so for the former :P

Why couldn’t the Romans conquer Caledonia?

I can't answer that because, I know nothing about ancient Scottish history, not even the Romans themselves even though I did a topic about them in primary school, which I hated back then. From a quick Google search because I'm lazy to think, it was to do with construction of the Antonine Wall cutting across central Scotland which had protected them from the feisty and unfriendly tribes up north, and that their attacks were giving them a hard time and felt that building such wall was better than to retaliate.

I hope that helps :P

To my knowledge, it had caused more fatalities than any other form of "shock tactic". I had to research on that as I've never heard of it in my life.

Are there any Christmas traditions that are specific to Scotland?

There is one, going by the name of Là Challuinn or Là na Bliadhna Ùire, which is celebrated in the Scottish Highlands. It is also part of the "Little Christmas" occasion that is usually celebrated in Ireland or, Women's Christmas or Old Christmas. Strangely, they are not held on the traditional Christmas Day as they're held on 1st January instead (though in Ireland, is the 6th of that month).
