Happy Robbie Burns Day!
Even though Robert Burns passed away at the age of 37 of rheumatic heart disease, he is always remembered every year. Robbie Burns Day is celebrated as a Scottish national holiday on January 25th. On this day, not only Scots honour his poetic life and spirit but people all around the world. Celebrations include: playing bagpipes, reading his poetry, feasting on traditional Scottish food, such as Haggis and dressing in a kilt and other other Scottish attire.
