Robert Burns Day

If today is your birthday, you are in good literary company.  January 25th has four major writers who celebrate birthdays today:

 

But only one gets a birthday supper every year…

  • Robert Burns, Scotland’s national poet – who gave us
” My Luve’s like a red, red rose,
That’s newly sprung in June…”

“The best-laid schemes o’ mice a ‘men
Gang aft agley”

“Oh wad power the giftie gie us
To see oursel’s as others see us!”
and…

Auld Lang Syne


Haggis and a wee bit of whiskey
