A Burns Supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, author of many Scots poems including “Auld Lang Syne,” which is generally sung as a folk song at Hogmanay and other New Year celebrations around the world. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet’s birthday, 25 January, sometimes also known as Robert Burns Day or Burns Night (Burns Nicht), although they may in principle be held at any time of the year.
The Selkirk Grace
Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit.
Burns suppers are most common in Scotland, but they occur wherever there are Burns Clubs, Scottish Societies, expatriate Scots, or lovers of Burns’ poetry.Click the links to see all of my Redbubble Burns Night Paintings , Burns Night Photography, Burns Night Greeting Cards ,Burns Night Stickers Burns Night Tees, Burns Night iPhone Cases and Burns Night iPads.
