Passage 54. by Samuel Jewett   In Europe men do not usually wear skirts, but the Scottish national costume for men is a kind of skirt. It is called a "kilt." The Scottish like to be different. They are also proud of their country and its history, and they feel that the kilt is part of that history. That is why the men still wear kilts at traditional dances and on national holidays. They believe they are wearing the same clothes that Scottish men always used to wear. That is what they believe. However, kilts are not really so old. In the early days, Scottish men wore a kind of long shirt that went below their knees. They wore long socks and a big wool blanket around their shoulders. These clothes were warm and comfortable for working outside on a farm, but they were not so good when men started to work in factories in modern times. So in 1730 a factory owner changed the blanket into a skirt: the kilt. That's how the first kilt was made, according to one historian. In the late 1700s, Scottish soldiers in the British Army began to wear kilts. One reason for this was national feeling: The Scottish soldiers wanted to look different from the English soldiers. The British Army probably had a different reason: A Scottish soldier in a kilt was always easy to find! The Scottish soldiers fought hard and became famous. The kilt was part of that fame, and in the early 1800s men all around Scotland began to wear kilts. These kilts had colorful stripes going up and down and across. In Scotland, this pattern is called a "tartan." Tartan cloth was used many centuries ago. In fact, Scottish literature talks about tartans in the 1200s. At first, the tartans showed where people came from. Then they became important to Scottish families. We do not know when this happened. Some people say that the colors of the family tartans are many centuries old. Others say that they became important only in the nineteenth century. In any case, by the early 1800s, most Scottish families had special colors for their tartans. The men always wore these colors on their kilts. For example, the Campbell family tartan was dark blue, with yellow and green stripes. The exact history of the tartan kilt is not so important. To the Scottish people today, it is part of their tradition, and that is what matters. Mark the best choice       1.   This article is about __________.
