Happy Hogmanay!

16 comments


Us Scots are generally well known the world over for our Hogmanay Celebration. There are many traditions followed by not only Scots living here but Scots residing in countries around the globe. We Scots generally take our Hogmanay celebrations very seriously, so serious that even the 2nd of January is a public Holiday here!

So whether you sit down and have a wee dram with loved ones, get out and about First Footing at the bells or indeed partake in a verse or two of Auld Lang Syne (in which case, Scotland won’t be too far from you this New Year!). I would like to wish you all a Happy Hogmanay!

Haste ye back, we loue you dearly, call again you’re welcome here.
May your days be free from sorrow, and your friends be ever near.
May the paths o’er which you wander, be to you a joy each day.
Haste ye back we loue you dearly, haste ye back on friendship’s way

Thank you Scottish, and the same to you and your family, I get annoyed when people sing auld lang syne, because they invariably sing the wrong words, and sing, 'for the sake of' to every verse, Derek.

We spent Hogmany in the Grant Arms hotel in Grantown-on-Spey, which is right on the town square. After a riotus dinner and ceilidh we all piled out into the square for the street party. There was a proper ceilidh band, no pop groups here, and then a couple of thousand of us watched a firework display which, is said, to be even better than that of Edinburgh.
The one problem that I have with Hogmany, is that it doesn't really kick-off until midnight! Why can't we have all of this stuff about six or seven o'clock and then be in bed by half ten?
Happy New Year, all.
