Jan 25

Tonight is Burns Night!

 

Burns Night commemorates the life of the bard (poet) Robert Burns, who was born on January 25, 1759.

 

 

The day also celebrates Burns’ contribution to Scottish culture. Burns’ best-known work is “Auld Lang Syne”.

We were at the Edinburgh Tattoo for this performance but I didn’t take this video.

 

 

Haggis, neeps and tatties (turnips and potatoes) are traditionally eaten in Scotland on Burns Night with a dessert of cranachan.

 

 

Bringing in the haggis and addressing it (of course)

 

 

I have never had haggis and intend never to have any!  Not even haggis-flavored potato chips or pizza.
