Your favorite Sister thanks everyone that participated in this year’s Extraordinary Give!
Robert Burns Supper
What day of the year combines haggis, whisky and poetry with lots of fun and laughter? Burns Night of course!
Robert Burns is known as The Bard of Scotland and his birthday is celebrated in January throughout the world. The celebration involves eating Haggis, (a Scotland national dish), drinking whiskey and celebrating, through song and poetry, the life of Robert Burns.
There will be toasts and speeches and songs and poems and KILTS the likes of which have not been seen since last year’s celebration. Enjoy a traditional Scottish fare of cock-a-leekie soup, haggis (a Scottish sausage that looks like a round sausage tied at both ends), neeps (mashed rutabaga) and champed tatties (pronounced champ-ed, meaning ‘mashed’ potatoes), helped down with a dram or two of whisky. It will involve wearing full Scottish regalia, (if possible). We will stay close to the traditional Burns Night format with full pomp and bag-piping circumstance. Among Robert Burns’s better known poems are ‘Auld Lang Syne’ and ‘My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose’; we’ll give you a rendition of both of these well-loved songs and more besides on January 26th!
