Fair fa a’ yer sonsie faces! Saturday was Burns Night, which meant all over the world, people joined together in song and supper, with haggis and poetry aplenty!
Burns night is one of those cultural events that, on the face of it, might seem to be a touch stereotypical, and is very easy to bury under swathes of tartan and heather. But to Scots, it’s so much more than tradition – It’s about celebrating national pride, of revelling in the things that make us Scottish, and getting together with pals old and new for an old-fashioned good time. Haggis, neeps and tatties, whiskey, and the poetry and songs of one of Scotland’s greatest sons. Hell, if you can manage to squeeze a ceilidh in there, you’re all set!
So, raise a glass to Scotland this week! For wha’s like us?
Damn few, and they’re a’ deid!
