Sunday, January 25 is Robbie Burns Day, a day meant to celebrate a famous Scottish poet and his beloved homeland.
Here’s a tune to get your Robbie Burns weekend started.
This tune is traditionally played as the haggis is paraded around the room before being served. Not coincidently, the tune is “A Man’s A Man For A’ That” by Robbie Burns himself.
Next week’s post will be a Robbie Burns Recap, as I’ll have piped in the haggis at the local campus of a large internet corporation. Hint – it rhymes with “Smoogle!” I will also be making a return performance on Monday at a local retirement community.
PS. There has been a debate in my household over the past few days about what the plural of haggis is. My wife argues that it’s “haggii.” I argue that it can have a plural meaning, just like the word “sheep” does. What do you think? Help us settle this debate!
