From A Midge in
Your Hand is Worth Two Up Your Kilt
by Stuart McLean
Haggis – that icon of the Scottish Nation; lungs, heart and
liver of sheep with a dash of blood stuffed into a sheep’s
stomach! No wonder we’re always so bloody miserable.
You can take a haggis to water but you cannae drown the wee
If the haggis sees his shadow
We will have six more weeks of winter.
If he doesn’t see his shadow,
We will have an early spring.
(Folk Lore for predicting the weather that is used on the
25th of January, Haggis Day)
