On the 25th of January every year Scotland celebrates the birth of the very famous poet Robert Burns

slide3

At a “Burn’s Supper” the traditional food served is haggis, neeps and tatties.

Adults would drink whisky to toast the haggis and children would toast with IrnBru.

slide4

People might attend a Ceilidh where traditional Scottish Country Dancing would take place.

Tartan is worn with most men wearing a kilt.

slide5

Scotland also celebrates St Andrew’s Night on the 30th of November. St Andrew is the Patron Saint of Scotland and his cross is shown on the Scottish flag know as the Saltire

slide6

On St Andrew’s night we celebrate all things Scottish. People wear tartan and song s and poems from Robert Burns might be heard.

slide7

Scotland is known for it’s hospitality all over the world and many visitors come to Scotland or Scots who now live in far away lands return for “Hogmanay” or New Year’s Eve where we say good bye to the old year and “ring” in the new.

slide8

When the bells ring at midnight on “Hogmanay” people go out and visist family and friends. This is called “First Footing” You are expected to bring a gift of food, drink and coal. This is for good luck and is supposed to make sure the host will have plenty to eat, drink and warm their home in the coming year.

slide9

When the last bell has sounded at midnight on Hogmanay people toast each other and wish each other “Happy New Year” and then the song “Auld Lang Syne” is often sung.

slide10

The words 'Auld Lang Syne' literally translates from old Scottish dialect meaning 'Old Long Ago' and is about love and friendship in times past. The lyrics in the song Auld Lang Syne referring to 'We'll take a Cup of Kindness yet' relate to a drink shared by men and women to symbolise friendship. Happy New Year!!!!

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

And never brought to mind?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

And auld langsyne!

Chorus.-For auld langsyne, my dear,

For auld langsyne.

We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,

For auld langsyne.
