Do you know Robert Burns ?
Do you know the Selkirk Grace?
Do you know Address to a Haggis?

Today is traditionally known as Burns Night;  this is the celebration of the life of the Scottish poet Robert Burns.  Robert Burns was born 25th January 1759 and wrote his first poem at the age of 15. He sadly died at just 37years but wrote a catalogue of poetry. The most famous being Auld Lang Syne. 

Do look up the wonderful work that he created and do try your haggis with neaps and tatties.

Selkirk Grace
Some hae meat an canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit.
