Homecoming Scotland 2009 - Robert Burns

The 25th January is celebrated throughout Scotland as Burns Day. This year is the 250th celebration of his birth. We consider him our National Bard and hold Burns Suppers as a means of reciting his poetry and singing his songs. 'Auld Lang Syne' is probably his best known poem and is often sung at the end of one year into the next. Traditionally, a Burns Supper would have haggis, neeps and tatties as the second course of the meal. The haggis is piped in and 'The Address to the Haggis'is recited. Unfortunately, Tony has yet to arrive in Scotland, so we have used Coco instead. Coco attended the Burns Assembly and went to Burns cottage. We also have a photo of Coco with a Haggis. Coco goes to Alloway, where Robert Burns was born. Robert Burns was born in this house. This is his kitchen. He was born in this bed.His father taught Robert to read. This is Coco with a haggis.Coco enjoys haggis and neeps!
