January is the time for Scots in Scotland and all over the world to celebrate once again the birthday of that most famous of Scots, Robert Burns. Born on 25th January, 1759 and died in 1796, Robert Burns is credited with writing and preserving more than 300 poems and traditional songs. A Burns Supper is often held at which the traditional Scottish Haggis is served, together with ‘neeps and tatties’. Burns poems are recited, songs sung and speeches praising brotherhood, whisky and love are given.
Last week students and staff from ECS Scotland attended a Supper with Burns at the Scottish Storytelling Centre. A three-course dinner accompanied by stories and songs from the life of Burns. What a great way to welcome in 2018 and wash away the January blues.
