The famous Scottish poet Robbie Burns is immortalized by Scottish around the world every January 25, the day of his birth. In Toronto, Robbie Burns Suppers will be celebrated at local pubs, churches, university campuses and museums including Mackenzie House, the former home of William Lyon Mackenzie. Mackenzie House will be celebrating Robbie Burns Day on Sunday, January 22, 2012 from noon to 4:30 p.m. and will feature live music, shortbread and Scotland’s national dish, Haggis. (If you’ve ever wondered what Haggis is, it’s made of sheep’s heart, liver and lungs mixed with oatmeal, herbs and spices…run, don’t walk to Mackenzie House to try some Haggis.) Tickets for the Robbie Burns Day at Mackenzie House are Adults $5.71, Seniors and Youth $3.81 and Children $3.33 plus tax.
