Yes indeed. But why not also enjoy the tradition of celebrating the life and work of Robert Burns with a Burns Night Supper? Usually held on or around 25 January to mark Burns’ birthday, it is a wonderful way to remember his fantastic legacy, no matter where you are in the world.
There are plenty of places where you can read about Robert Burns, though a good starting point is the ‘official’ Robert Burns website. Here you can find everything you might wish and need to know about the great man, including a full list of his works, and a guide for hosting your very own supper.
Hub and I will be spending our evening on the 25th at one of our favourite Edinburgh restaurants eating a traditional Scottish menu of cullen skink, haggis neaps and tatties, and cranachan. Yum!
It’s a great thing to do on a date night. And in this spirit, here is a verse from one of Burns’ most famous works, A Red, Red Rose:
“Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.”
