Burns Day celebrations at Finney House
To celebrate the life and poetry of Robert Burns, the author of many Scots poems, perhaps his most famous being Auld Lang Syne, Finney House spent the day doing all things Scottish.
A piper piped in the haggis and entertained residents and families, we had tartan napkins, a wee dram and a spot of IRN BRU to help wash it down. We also made tartan button holes and hung Scottish flags around the dining room. We shared some of his poetry and for those of you who can understand it here’s Burn’s grace, this is traditionally spoken before the haggis is eaten, ‘Some hae meat an canna eat, And some wad eat that want it; But we hae meat, and we can eat, And sae the Lord be thankit.’
