Have a Traditional Burns Night Wherever You Are

"O Scotia! My dear, my native soil! For whom my warmest wish to Heaven is sent." - Robert Burns

We Scots love our traditions. In fact we are famous for it. That ingrained national pride is often the envy of the world, or so WE like to think. Whether we’re strutting around in kilts, busking with our bagpipes, or singing a well-known Scots tune at every opportunity we get – we are proud of our heritage. Therefore, it comes as little surprise that with Burns Night fast approaching this weekend, us Scots will be throwing ourselves into it with all the gusto only a Scotsman (or woman) can muster.

New Year, New You – Stay on Track!

“There is no diet that will do what eating healthy does. Skip the diet. Just Eat Healthy!” - Unknown

Every New Year, the majority of us vow to change at least one of our bad habits; whether it’s smoking, drinking, or spending too much money. We also like to take this annual opportunity to start doing something new, something we have wanted to do for a while - aka a New Year resolution.
