Burns Night

Today is Robbie Burns‘ birthday aka Rabbie Burns Day. Rabbie Burns Day also means the annual Burns Night where we dress in our clan tartan and recite Burns’ poetry over a hearty feast of haggis with neeps and tatties accompanied with many wee drams of Scotch whiskey in celebration of my Scots heritage. Well, I […]
