It commemorates the life of the bard, poet, Robert Burns, who was born on January 25, 1759. A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, born 25 January 1759, died 21 July 1796, the author of many a Scots poem and song. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet's birthday, 25 January, known as Burns Night, Scots: Burns Nicht; Scottish Gaelic: Oidhche na Taigeise; also called Robert Burns Day or Rabbie Burns Day. However, in principle, celebrations may be held at any other time of the year. Burns suppers are held all around the world. The first supper was held in memoriam at Burns Cottage by Burns's friends, on 21 July 1801, the fifth anniversary of his death; it has been a regular occurrence ever since. The first still extant Burns Club was founded in Greenock in 1801 by merchants who were born in Ayrshire, some of whom had known Burns. They held the first Burns supper on what they thought was his birthday, 29 January 1802, but in 1803, they discovered the Ayr parish records that noted his date of birth was actually 25 January 1759. Since then, suppers have been held on or about 25 January. All photographs are copyright of Sandy Stevenson, Tour Scotland, and may not be used without permission.
