Burns Night is celebrated in Scotland each year on January 25th, which is the date famous Scottish poet Rabbie Burns was born in 1759.

The main event on this date is the Burns Supper, which traditionally involves guests and the haggis being bagpiped in before the poet’s ‘Address to a Haggis’ is read by the host, and a meal consisting of haggis, neeps and tatties (commonly known as turnips and potatoes…) is served.

Happy Burns Night, wherever you are!
