Last week many in Scotland observed Burns Night, a celebration of the life of Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns. Eli’s school had a wee celebration as well. The children had a ceilidh where they performed a bit of traditional Scottish dancing. They also got to sample some of the main elements of a Burns Supper, which features Haggis, “neeps,” and “tatties” (turnips and potatoes). Of course, no traditional meal for children in Glasgow could be washed down by anything other than IrnBru. It was a hilarious and cute spectacle to watch. Here are a few photos.
