Happy New Year'e Eve
The Scottish New Years celebration is known as Hogmany. It's imperative to wear a mask. The dour Scots are afraid someone will see them having fun, and call their parents. My daughter's in-laws hail from this neighborhood. Mercifully, my family is from a bit further west.
The Irish New Years celebration is known as drunken brawl. It involves consuming copious alcoholic beverages. Masks are periodically worn, to throw off the police, and the innocent victims.
Whatever your family tradition, party hardy, be safe and come back tomorrow in one piece. We'll leave the light on for ya.
