The 25th of January is the celebration of the life and poetry of Robert Burns., Robert Burns was born in 1759 and died aged 37.
He is well known for his poetry and tender songs including ‘Auld Lay Syne,’ ‘Ye Banks and Braes of Bonnie Doon’ and ‘My love’s red, red, rose.’ Burn’s first book of poetry was published in 1788 and was based around the feelings of ordinary poor people, one of his most famous and humorous poems is ‘Tam O Shater.’
Burn’s Day is normally celebrated by a formal or informal meal, which usually includes haggis (a traditional Scottish dish celebrated by Burns in ‘Address to a Haggis’), Scottish Whisky, and the recitation of his poetry. Burns suppers are most commonly celebrated in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
