Scottish Lessons For Canadians
January 26, 2012

Yesterday was Robbie Burns Day, but what good is celebrating all things Scottish for only one day? That's why George asked Canadian author and editor Douglas Gibson, who was born in Kilmarnock, Scotland, to give us a primer on how to speak like a true Scot.

Now we can head to Scotland and hang out with the locals, and presumably spend every day as if it was Robbie Burns Day. (Although hopefully that doesn't mean we'll get to stoshious, if you know what we mean.)
