Burns Night

January 25th is Burns Night. The life and works of the Scottish poet Robert Burns is celebrated on this, the anniversary of his birthday.Photo of shortbread biscuits

The celebrations take the form of “Burns Suppers” and involve the reciting of poetry, the imbibing of whiskey, and the consumption of haggis, neeps and tatties. I think I’ll stick to the shortbread biscuits!

Sláinte Mhath! (Good health)

  1. He was one for the ages!
    O my Luve’s like a red, red rose,
    That’s newly sprung in June:
    O my Luve’s like the melodie,
    That’s sweetly play’d in tune.
