I have my Macsween haggis defrosting as I type.
Sadly nowadays I need to source a gf version, and this one is great.
My Dad ate haggis- being 50% Scots, and this seemed to be the most important part to him!
My mum (from Berkshire) didn't like it, but would happily eat heart and faggots, so I never understood.
I raised my children to eat it.
They were quite old before they realised what's in it, and decided it was a bit late to change their minds!
It's cheap and nutritious.
Will you be partaking?

My ex spent ages trying to get a robin to eat from his hand. It never happened
I think an affinity with nature is something you're born with, it's in you.
He didn't like sitting on the ground or exploring woodland with low branches because of bugs and insects.

I never try to get any wildlife to come to me.  I prefer them to stay wild and away from humans as much as practicably possible!

Mummyhen used to throw breakfast scraps from the window to the birds, there was a robin with a deformed leg who'd come and sit on her finger to feed from her hand.

I sometimes get foxes in the garden and my neighbour has a resident badger but I don't seem to be able to attract the birds or any wild haggis.

Should the plural of haggis be haggii or should we stick with haggis being both the plural and singular?

The noun haggis can be countable or uncountable.

In more general, commonly used, contexts, the plural form will also be haggis.

However, in more specific contexts, the plural form can also be haggises e.g. in reference to various types of haggises or a collection of haggises.


I prefer W'hen's version!
