Tea Cup Thursday

It's that time of year again...Robbie Burns' birthday. Officially it was yesterday but many celebrate it over the weekend. As many of you know, Robbie is Scotland's poet laureate and his poetry immortalizes early Scotland. We often have our own Robbie Burns dinner which includes scotch whiskey, roast beef, scotch whiskey, salmon, scotch whiskey, tatties & neeps, and so on. We play bagpipe music as we bring in the haggis. Everyone stands for the toast and then each person gets to recite lines from "Ode to a Haggis". We toast each other and also the Queen. It's lots of fun.
