We all love to celebrate. Whether it's getting together to mark a milestone, toasting the end of a difficult week with our friends or just remembering to take the bins out, celebration is a huge part of our everyday lives – giving us a space to reflect on what we've achieved and what's important to us.
These true stories have been written by people across Scotland reflecting on the theme of Celebration, as part of our annual Scotland's Stories Project.
