Happy Birthday Robert Burns

This evening many Scots around the world will be attending Burns' Night Suppers, wearing kilts, eating haggis and toasting the 'immortal memory.'  Well, this is what I hear they do.  The only Burns Night I ever attended was at the Research Club at Glasgow University.  There was a piper and tiny scoops of haggis, but I'm not sure it was like anyone else' event.

For those of you who have no Burns' Night to attend, you might be interested in the Completely Burns podcast from BBC Scotland.  During 2010, they recorded over 300 of his poems.  There are currently seven episodes available to download.
