2009 marks the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns, the national poet of Scotland whose words are sung the world over every New Year ("Auld Lang Syne"). The t-shirt features a close-up of the bard from the famous Alexander Naismith painting of 1787.
2009 also marks the launch of the Homecoming Scotland initiative by the Scottish Government with a year round programme of events to celebrate Scotland's great contribution to the world. It's reckoned that for every single Scot at home there are at least another five living overseas with Scottish blood coursing through their veins, so if everyone comes, it's going to be some party!
This t-shirt commemmorates the great man and would make a great gift for lovers of Burns the world over.
