Burns NightBurns Night or a Burns Supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of Robert Burns, author of Aud Lang Syne, normally held on his birthday, 25th January. The event is most celebrated in Scotland, but also - oddly - in Russia.
The evening can be formal or informal, but includes Haggis, Neeps and Tatties, and of course - a wee dram (or two!)
Formal events are frequently held by Burns Clubs and follow a standard prescribed format which includes the hosts welcome speech, the entrance of the haggis, several formal toasts, poetry readings, and traditional Scottish dancing.
DecorSince the evening is a traditional Scottish event, decor should reflect the Scottish theme with Scottish national flags and tartans. Musical influences might include bagpipe music or Scottish folk music. The more adventurous might even wish to adopt traditional Scottish dress - with men sporting kilts and sporans.
Traditional Scottish FareFor added atmosphere you might like to serve your customers with traditional Scottish foods for the evening. This would most likely involve serving up haggis with neeps and tatties (mashed swede or turnip and mashed potatoes). This should be accompanied by a wee dram of whisky.
