Burns Night is this Friday, January 25th, and celebrates the birth o’ Scotland’s most famous poet, wordsmith and lyricist, Robert Burns.
Tae be brutally honest, there is almost nae connection between Burns Night and Attic Self Storage, but in the interests o’ cashing in on what’s trending on Twitter, and tae improve our McGoogle ranking, we are prepared tae try and find one. Or two. Och aye the noo.
Robert (Rabbie) Burns was born in January 1759 in Alloway, near Ayr, Scotland and became famous for writing poetry. Attic Self Storage started trading in March 2008 in Bow, East London, England and has become famous for providing storage space. Nae spooky synchronicity there then.
However, for fans o’ the Scottish Bard, it is worth noting that Attic Self Storage is a fine (moth and moose-free) place tae store the complete works o’ Rabbie Burns in rare leather bound volumes and all manner o’ other non-perishable Celtic paraphernalia:
Unfortunately, we are unable tae provide a permanent repository for perishable Burns Night delicacies such as haggis (sheep’s heart, liver & lungs minced up with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach), Tatties (potatoes), Neeps (swede) and deep fried Mars Bars (use your imagination, Jimmy).
If you’re going tae a traditional Burns Night celebration this year, we hope ye enjoy the blood curdling wail o’ the bagpipes, the rich timbre o’ the toast-master’s voice and the sonsie taste o’ the haggis (Great chieftain o’ the pudding-race!) washed down with a warming whisky.
Tae get ye in the spirit, here are a few auld poems we recently discovered at the back o’ one o’ our storage units:

Thank ye and good Burns Night tae one an’ all.
