I guess its early days yet, but I hear talk that Homecoming Scotland 2009 is to be launched on 250th Anniversary of Rabbie Burns Birth, Jan 25th 2009, by way of some kind of Burns Night bash. There is also an argument to have it launched on Hogmanay since its a year long thing. Auld Lang Syne and 'a' that;-)
What do you think?
Why 2009? 2009 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of our national poet and international cultural icon Robert Burns whose message of friendship and 'Auld Lang Syne' lives on.
2009 will be a celebration of not only Robert Burns but some of Scotland's great contributions to the world: Burns, Golf, Whisky, The Enlightenment and Innovation, as well as our rich culture and heritage which lives on at home and through the many people of Scots descent who live out with our shores."
