Burns Night Supper is a traditional meal held all over the world but particularly in Scotland, to celebrate the life of Robert Burns. It is usually celebrated on the 25th January but dinners are held in the 2 weeks surrounding the date.
Robert Burns was born on 25 January 1759 in the village of Alloway, two miles south of Ayr. His parents, Willian Burnes and Agnes Broun, were tenant farmers but they ensured their son received a relatively good education and he began to read avidly. The works of Alexander Pope, Henry Mackenzie and Laurence Sterne fired Burns’s poetic impulse and relationships with the opposite sex provided his inspiration. Handsome Nell, for Nellie Kilpatrick, was his first song.
