He was born on January, 25, 1759 in a village called Alloway in Scotland, hence why Burns Night is celebrated on January 25.

One of the main ways that Burns Night is celebrated is with a traditional meal.

This includes Scottish haggis, served up with mashed turnips (neeps) and potatoes (tatties), which are traditionally mashed too.

You can celebrate the writings of Robert Burns this January with number of nights out across the county.
