The University of Glasgow’s Centre for Robert Burns Studies is promoting a #VirtualBurnsNight – and we can all take part!
The social media event will take place on Burns Night, Monday 25 January.
On that day, whatever you end up doing, please share a picture of your celebration with the hashtag #VirtualBurnsNight. This could be a photo of yourself, a photo of your haggis meal, of your whisky glass, of your kilt, of your Burns book, of your home, of your mug of tea – of whatever you think is appropriate.
The preferred social media for sharing your picture is Twitter. If you do not use Twitter but have a Facebook or Instagram account, feel free to post there with the hashtag (making sure your post is public so that we and other participants can see it).
If you are not on social media, please email us your photo(s) at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will share it for you. If you are planning to celebrate Burns before or after the 25th, it is also fine. Just send / share your picture whenever suits best.
The Centre has also launched an Interactive World Map of Burns Suppers, featuring more than 2,500 suppers across 150 countries. It can be accessed here. And yes – last year’s St Monans Burns Supper is on the map.
