Tonight Scots will celebrate the life and poerty of “The Scottish Bard”, born in 1759, for the 264th time, although its said the first 42 didnt count as the tradition only began in 1801 when his friends gathered to mark the 5th anniversary of his passing.
The works of Burns has shaped books and films for years and his legend remains fresh in the memories as his famous words are intertwined with modern life still today.
The meal the friends ate that night was Haggis and they used Burns’ poem “Address to a Hagis” as a tribute to him, and so it continues in its third century of remembering.
Tonights menu for many will start with cock-a-leekie soup, followed by haggis, neeps and tatties and to end with a glass of whiskey (or two).
We’d like to wish current players Daniel Harvie, Zak Jules, plus Robbie Stockdale and not forgetting our very own John Samuel plus all the Dons fans and other wee beasties who are celebrating Scots culture tonight a very happy Burns Night from all at The MKDSA.
