Rabbie Burns

 25 January is Robert Burns Day

A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, the author of many Scots poems. 

The suppers are normally held on or near the poet's birthday, 25 January, known as Burns Night also called Robert Burns Day or Rabbie Burns Day.

The text to "Auld Lang Syne" was written by Robert Burns in 1788, being based on an older Scottish folk song.

A few sillies in celebration of the poet, and Scots in general.

Thankful for the authors who've written books, with plots that take place in Scotland, both in moden times, Victorian Times, or 'way further back in history.
