Burns is celebrated widely in Dunedin, near where I live.  There is a big statue to him in the middle of the city and they have the haggis and poetry readings and extra bits for this year.  One of his relatives - uncle, I think - was an early founder here and one of his daughters married a doctor and lived in my area.  They had 12 kids so there are descendants around here.  

Not to be outdone Auckland has its historical literary associations – a direct descendant of John Shakespeare, William’s brother, recently celebrated her 107th birthday. occasion4       She likes to talk a lot but nothing about any reading she does!

I reckon that, at 107 she gets to do exactly what she wants!  Laughing  Especially on her birthday.
