Happy Burns Day

While at university in Scotland, we would celebrate Robbie Burns Day every year on the 25th of January. Before supper, we would all stand at table and, as one, toast to the memory of the great Scottish poet, and recite the following short "grace" before sitting back down.

"Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit."

Enjoy your Robbie Burns Day.
