Burns Night 2022: What is Burns Night, who was Robert Burns, why Scots celebrate with whisky and haggis
Here’s everything you need to know about Burns Night, when Burns Night 2022 is and why Scots dine out on whisky, haggis and don tartan on this night each year. Burns Night is celebrated each year in Scotland to mark the birth of legendary poet Robert Burns
Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o the puddin’-race!
Cheers Scottish friends!
Whether ye be Scots born or not,
We are joined by Scottish spirits!
From The Press and Journal ( very old Aberdonian newspaper)
In the early hours of Saturday morning we had what we thought was an injured haggis brought in, but after listening to the wee thing shouting ‘fair fa’ your honest sonsie face… Wee sleekit cow’rin tim’rous beastie…’ and ‘some hae meat and canna eat’ repeatedly for 2 hours, it was obvious he was suffering from severe burns.
We started him on an irn bru intravenous drip, hot toddies, and shortbread fed little and often.
By Saturday night he was looking much better.
By Sunday morning he was starting to smile and looked like a totally different haggis.
By this afternoon he had finished the shortbread and the full bottle of whisky, was grinning from lug to lug and is completely away with the fairies. We hope to sober him up and release him onto the Lomonds tomorrow.

So happy the haggis lived @ElsieDownie there are so many wild ones around I’m not surprised there are injuries
