Burn's day

I heard it was a Scottish Holiday. What is it about?

by Anonymousreply 102/05/2013

I think it's in January. It's when they eat Haggis with mashed potatoes and turnips and have a nice glass of whiskey to wash it down. Supposedly the usual toast is "death to the red hag". Other than that you'll have to google it. Robert Burns helped preserve the Scots dialect which is related to English being a Germanic language/dialect; it should not be confused with Scots Gaelic which is an entirely different language but mutually intelligible with Irish Gaelic.
