It is said that a third of American visitors to Scotland believe the haggis to be a wild animal. The rumour goes that the haggis can be found up in the hills lurking alongside the sheep and grouse in the heather. Special wetsuits must be donned to bring the little brutes to bay. They say that they are at their best in January served with bashed neeps and tatties (turnips and potatoes). It is in fact a mixture of boiled lamb, lungs and lights, heart and liver, oatmeal and spices, minced (US: ground) and stuffed into a sheep's intestines. Each year the haggis is eaten throughout Scotland and by Scottish communities all over the world as the centerpiece of Burn's Night on 25 January. It is generally accompanied by renditions of Burn's 'To a Haggis'.
