It’s Burns’ Night!

Being married to a Scot, Burns’ Night is an important point in our calendar. Not only is it an opportunity to celebrate the life of poet Robert Burns, but it’s also a chance to gather friends together and partake in a tasty serving of haggis. Usually we’ll opt for Macsweens but, this year, we were offered haggis from the Lancashire Haggis Company (aka Chris Brown of Brown’s Butchers in Chorley) and I’m pleased to say it really was rather good! Chris has been making haggis for around 15 years and has received a number awards for its quality, not just in England but, perhaps surprisingly, even in Scotland, itself!

Burns' Night wouldn't be Burns' Night without bagpipe music, tartan trews and a glengarry bonnet (kindly donated by a neighbour)
