Happy Burns Night!

On the 25th of January, Scotland celebrates the birthday of its most famous bard : Robert Burns. Cue, loads of Burns suppers and Burns night celebrations, generally involving haggis, neeps and tatties and a healthy dose of whisky, followed by lots of singing and dancing and ending with Auld Lang Syne.

A "wild" haggis, as photographed at the Kelvingrove Museum last weekend.

And happy birthday to my blog - one today! It seems like yesterday that I was writing my first post about, take a guess... Burns Night!

Love the haggis picture. But you can't see that it's got one leg longer than the other so as it can run round mountains ;-)

Bon anniversaire.

... I love this wild haggis, exactly how one should look!

Je me souviens de Robbie Burns' nights mémorables, célébrées à Vancouver.
