My low level of Scottish culture is came out again when a couple of days ago my mate asked me where we can go to celebrate the Burns Night.
The answer was easy and clear…”to celebrate what??”.
Burns Night is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, author of many Scottish poems and happen on 25th January.
How people celebrate this event?? With whisky, haggis and Scottish country dancing of course.
