Whether it's your first Burns Night or your 10th, Sport Kilt has got you covered.
There is perhaps no celebration as curiously and uniquely Scottish as Burns Night, which takes place every year on January 25th. The origins of this ritualistic supper date back to 1801 when friends of the iconic poet Robert Burns gathered to read his works, drink whisky in his memory and dine on haggis to take pride in their national heritage.
Burns Night gatherings are still going strong over 200 years later, and while there is somewhat of a formal order of activities to follow, the key to a successful evening is a reverential attitude toward the Scottish homeland and a genial sense of merriment. Whether you’re attending a supper held by a formal Burns Club or hosting one yourself, here’s what you can expect.
