Join me to discovery Burns Night

” Should old acquaintance be forget, and never brought to mind? Should old acquaintance be forget, and auld lang syne? For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang ayne, we’ll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne.”

I could sing this song in Chinese when I was very young. I felt happy each time when I sang this song, and I was attracted by the beautiful melody and lyric. At that time, I just wonder who write such an amazing lyrics.

 Many years later, when I went to university in China, I studied English literature. I knew many famous authors and poets in the history of English literature. Robert Burns was introduced in one of the chapters of my literature book.

I read some of his poems at that time, and I liked them. Some of his poems were hard to understand because they were written in Scots which is a native Scottish language a little similar to English.

In the summer of 2010, I came to Edinburgh which is one of the most beautiful cities in Scotland or even in the world. I had some amazing experiences here. Two of the people who most impressed me were St. Andrews and Robert burns.

Today is Burns Night. I am going to discover more about this special day, Robert Burns, and Scotland.

Hope to hear your stories in Burns night.
