Burns Night (January 25th)

Robert Burns was born in Alloway in the parish of Ayr in the south west of Scotland on 25th January 1759. His birth is traditionally celebrated around the world with a Burns Night Supper on or as near as possible to the 25th January. It’s an event quite unlike any other – in its full form comprising pipes, prayers, poetry, songs, speeches and the ritual slicing of a steaming haggis. And sometimes kilts are worn too. His poem Auld Lang Syne turned into a song is now traditionally sung to celebrate the New Year.
