Scottish country dancers all over the world enjoy marking Burns Night with Burns Suppers. Burns Suppers usually include the reciting of the Selkirk Grace:
The haggis is "piped in", that is, a cooked haggis is ceremoniously carried on a platter into the dining hall to bagpipe music (live, where piper availability permits)). A speaker then gives an "Address To The Haggis" (a poem by Burns) during which this sacrificial meat pudding is cut open with a knife. All guests then toast the haggis (by raising their glasses), and go on to enjoy a meal of haggis with mashed neeps and tatties. The meal might be followed by various addresses, toasts, and performances of Burns poems.
Scottish country dancers' Burns Night celebrations often include dancing- its liveliness in inverse proportion to the amount of supper that has been eaten. At the end of the party the guests stand in a circle and sing "Auld Lang Syne", a famous Burns poem.
