Scottish poet and lyricist Robert Burns, is regarded as the pioneer of the Romantic Movement. Celebration of his life and work became nearly a national charismatic cult during the 19th and 20th centuries, and his influence has long been strong on Scottish literature. Burns Suppers began in 1802 in conjunction with ‘Robert Burns Day’ celebrate on January 25th, the poet’s birthday. Historically, Burns enthusiasts would gather together and read works of the famed poet along with dining on Scottish dishes on this day. Suppers are held around the world in honor of this influential Scottish cultural icon.
