January can feel like a long month, especially for those who choose to take part in Dry January!
One event that many look forward to is Burns Night and it will be upon us very soon.
Burns Nights have been an almost annual event since 1801, with the first one being held in Burns' Cottage on 21 July 1801, the fifth anniversary of his death. It was the following year that it was held in January, the month of his birthday, for the first time.
Traditionally, Burns Nights involve haggis, whisky and recital of his poetry.
However, don't let tradition put you off and you can still enjoy celebrating Burns Night even if you don't like haggis or whisky. In fact, Burns himself didn't limit himself to whisky and he enjoyed a number of tipples including rum, brandy, ale and port.
