For more than 200 years, Scots throughout the world have gathered in January for Burns Suppers to celebrate the life of Robert Burns, the prolific poet and lyricist of the 18th century.

As Scots began to migrate from Scotland to countries around the world, honoring Roberts Burns became a way to get together to have fun, raise a few glasses of Scotch to toast “The Bard,” his writings and songs and to celebrate their own heritage.

An “everyman” poet and farmer considered by many to be the Bard of Scotland, Robert Burns authored...
