Late entry! But do you know what Hogmanay is?

It was a very untypical Hogmanay for us, as whilst normally, we’ve friends around for dinner, and then depart for a ceilidh; this year we could only stay in and watch telly.

As the link states, they simply don’t really know where the word comes from, and I’m never really surprised when people don’t know the term, when I mention it to them – but believe me, virtually no one here in Scotland that I’ve met, will use the term “New Year’s Eve”!

As for the television, this year, as most years, was a mix of Scottish music, and the inevitable countdown, which usually showcases some canon in Edinburgh, at Edinburgh castle.
