Happy New Year

The Irish tradition, known as first footing, says that your year will be blessed if your first visitor of the new year is a red headed child. For those not so fortunate to have one of your own, I'll share my annual New Years visitor, a little red headed girl.

Scottish tradition, believing that the fair haired are the dreaded vikings, accept that your year will only be blessed if a dark haired man is your first visitor. Women are not welcome as first visitors. For you Scots (or female) I present Sir Sean.

May you each have a wonderful 2009.

Being German, I know of no "first footing" tradition -- of course, being German, we would feed whoever first entered our house on New Year's Day!
