Until recently, I wan’t familiar with Hogmanay, the celebration in Scotland that starts on New Year’s Eve and (apparently) ends when they run out of alcohol:
…Craig Ferguson described Hogmanay as follows: “In Scotland, New Year’s is called Hogmanay. And it is a time when people who can inspire awe in the IRISH for the amount of ALCOHOL that they drink decide to RAMP IT UP a notch.“
Sounds like fun! What are you doing on New Year’s Eve?
p.s. I never advocate drinking to excess. The stuff I like to drink is meant to be appreciated slowly, in small doses. With friends. However, I’m also not against a bit of celebration once in a while. Or a lot of celebration! If your celebration involves alcohol, don’t be stupid. Plan ahead to stay overnight and don’t drive!
