HAPPY NEW YEARS!

user posted image


New Year in Scotland as it's known to outsiders or Hogmanay as it's known to the Scots, is one of the UK's best attractions. As a rule, Hogmanay starts at noon upon Dec.31st going through to midday on Jan. 1st, although in the present day it could actually run to Jan 2nd, all determined by area custom.

The explanation as to why Hogmanay has become so outstanding inside Scotland is simply because Christmas time had been prohibited by the Scottish Presbyterian Church from the 17th century to the 1950's. It is said by many people that the Scottish usually do not really observe Christmas, it is simply the warm up for the big event - Hogmanay!

Festivals occur from metropolitan areas to small communities such as Kilmelford on the western coast. Those wishing a traditional Hogmanay in this kind of restful landscape will get superior self-catering cottages in places such as Melfort Village.

I'm going to have to look that up - that sounds amazing!

Forgot to mention that we are playing our annual Auld Lang Syne Marathon on Highlander Radio. This is about 12 hours of Auld Lang Syne representing around 150 different versions. This year we are mixing in the Parting Glass maybe every 10th song in memory of everyone we have loss to COVID-19. We are also featuring Simply Scottish's Hobmanay show several times between now and tomorrow.

Everyone enjoy their New Years tonight. While we will never forgot 2020, let's hope 2021 brings us brighter days!
