How to.....

Celebrate Burns night at home

Although he died over 220 years ago, It's Burns' ability to empathise with the human condition that makes him as relevant, and as popular, today than even in his own time.

 

His poem 'Auld Lang Syne', a sincere expression of friendship is sung, and suppers are celebrated on his birthday (25th January) each year with traditional dishes of haggis and whisky along with recitals of his best-loved work. Although there are many fine eateries willing to celebrate the event with a 'Burns Supper’, here are some tips on creating your own night of celebrating the 'Scottish Bard'.

Who was 'The Scottish Bard' Robbie Burns?

Born on January 25th 1759, in Alloway, Scotland, Robert Burns early life doesn't read like that of a national hero. But in his short life (Burns died aged just 37), he had taken the Scottish literary world by storm, and had secured a place for himself in history and in legend.
