There has also been a strong Jewish community for a very long time and in recent years with so many immigrants entering Scotland we have seen many other religions emerge such as Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism to name but a few.
There are also many people who have no beliefs at all, while some claim to be 'Christian' in order to have their children baptised, get married and/or buried in Church, but in reality give little or no thought to any real beliefs in God.Others would be reminded of the Scottish Customs and Traditions such as Hogmanay and of course our strange tongue with the singing of Auld Lang Syne around the world every New Year - a song which was written by our most famous Poet, Rabbie Burns, but few people understand.Ex-pats might think nostalgically of Burns Suppers or even create their own wherever they are, or perhaps they might think not so much as eating haggis but having a good plate of Fish and Chips and Mushy Peas, or having a cup of tea with some fresh shortbread.And do check out our Bookstores:- - You'll find a wide selection of some favourite Scottish Music such as Pipes and Drums, Fiddle, Accordian music and many famous Artists including The Proclaimers and Lulu.There's also a selection of DVDs which will introduce you to some of the sights of Scotland including Castles.There are still separate schools for Catholic and Protestant children, and it even spilled over to our two famous and opposing Glasgow Football Teams ie Protestants support Rangers and Catholics support Celtic.
