Happy New Year
In my part of Scotland, the New Year celebration is known as Hogmany. It's imperative to wear a mask. My dour Scots neighbors are afraid someone will see them having fun, and call their parents. Mercifully, my family tradition is from a bit further west.
My ancient relatives Irish New Years celebration is known as drunken brawl. It involves consuming copious alcoholic beverages, usually 12 ounces per serving. Masks are periodically worn, to elude the police, throw off the innocent victims, and protect the virgins.
Whatever your family tradition, party hardy, be safe and come back tomorrow in one piece. We'll leave the light on for ya.
For a bit more serious look at Celtic holiday traditions take a peek at my new best friends the Celtic Queens.
