Burns Night

“A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, author of many Scots poems including ‘Auld Lang Syne’, which is generally sung as a folksong at Hogmanay (HOCK-muh-nye) and other New Year celebrations around the world. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet’s birthday, January 25,  sometimes known as Burns night, although they may in principle be held at any time of the year.” -Wikipedia

At the butchershop where I work we are proud to offer for sale the only certified organic haggis in the UK, in anticipation of Burns Night upcoming.  I have already reserved mine.  I am not trying to be gastronomically macho when I say that I love haggis.   Mike Meyers gave it a slanderous reputation in “So I Married An Axe-Murderer”.  January 25 I plan to subsist solely on haggis and Islay single malt (ok now I’m being macho/stupid).
