Celebrate Burns Night with a wee dram

Many people the world over will celebrate Burns Night tonight.

Being Scottish myself I normally celebrate with a Burns supper. We usually have friends round to eat haggis, tatties-an’-neeps washed down with some good old Scotch whisky. After a tipple or two we may even recite some our favourite Burns’ poems.

The first suppers were held in Ayrshire at the end of the 18th century by friends of the poet. He is now widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland, and his work is celebrated worldwide.
