Here's a little picture puzzle for you. What links the above photo with the significance of today?
Need a clue?
Ready to give up?
Well the answer is of course Burn's Night. A Scottish celebration of their national poet Robert Burns, on his official birthday.
Now the big question is why doesn't England celebrate the birthday of our greatest wordsmith; William Shakespeare?
The 26th of April is his day, and it would be great if we could do something in a similar style to celebrate his life and work.
Instead of haggis and potatoes, we could have roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, and for afters, apple pie and custard. Or maybe the other classic English dish of fish and chips.
