A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns and is held on or near the poet's birthday 25th January. A piper generally greets guests although at less formal gatherings traditional Scottish music is played. Grace is said and the haggis is piped in. The host or a guest then recites the Address to a Haggis
At the end of the poem a whisky toast will be proposed to the haggis and the guests will sit down to the meal. The haggis is traditionally served with mashed potatoes and swede (neeps). Then follows toasts and speeches.
Once a vote of thanks is given everyone is asked to join hands and sing Aud Lang Syne to bring the evening to an end.
