If you don't know what any of that means, well, it refers to the January 25th celebration of the life and poetry of Scottish poet Robert Burns, where the traditional dish haggis is served. Though affectionately referred to as though it were a live beast, the haggis (in this ad, a large haggis called the Big Chieftain) is in fact a dish made of lamb, beef, oats, onions and spices. It tends to provoke a love-it-or-hate-it reaction. It's eaten with mashed tatties (potatoes) and neeps (turnips), and washed down with claret and/or whisky. If you're up for dessert as well, the traditional thing is cranachan, another Scottish speciality, which involves whipped cream, whisky, honey and fresh raspberries, with toasted oatmeal soaked overnight in a little bit of, erm, whisky... Don't forget to wear a touch of tartan if you've been invited to a Burn's Night jamboree.
