A Robert Burns Supper: Scotland’s Greatest Celebration

Course Detail

A Robert Burns Supper: Scotland’s Greatest Celebration image
Burns Suppers are held the world over to celebrate the life and works of Scotland’s most beloved bard (poet), Robert Burns, who died in 1796. The suppers are held on, or as close as possible to, his birthday, January 25, and have been a part of Scottish culture since 1801. The basic format for the evening has remained unchanged since that time and begins when the host invites the company to receive the haggis! Follow the time-honored form, which includes the eating of a traditional Scottish meal, the sipping of a wee dram of Scotch whiskey, and a speech and toast to the immortal memory of Robert Burns. You don’t have to be of Scottish ancestry to come, but if you are, wear your tartan!
