Robbie Burns 252 Years Young (and Roni's New Contest!)

Burns Day, today!


Is there a Burns supper taking place at a pub or Scottish association club near you? If not, in the tradition of the Tolkien birthday toast, you can simply raise a dram of whisky (my current favourite is The Glenlivet) in toast to the bard.

Recitals optional, but you could always go for A Red, Red Rose (which I once memorised for a school assignment), Tam O'Shanter, My Wife's A Winsome Wee Thing, A Man's A Man For A' That, or one of my favourite songs (which I believe was written by him; it's listed among the complete songs on Robert Burns Country), Sir John Cope:



Of course, I always think of Jamie Fraser. Ye Jacobites By Name, indeed.

If you're like me and can't choose a favourite, here's a list of all of Burns' poetry.

In other news, Roni of the awesome Fiction Groupie blog is hosting a query contest!
