|Welcome to Scotland.|
Today is New Year's Eve, or Hogmanay as we call it in Scotland. Historically a bigger deal for us than Christmas, even now it remains a huge street party event. The rest of the world might have a wee party, but for Scots who take their drinking like a sport this is the World Cup of Boozing.
There's been a thing or two in Glasgow to somewhat dampen the spirits of late - our Christmas has not been full of cheer but you can expect there'll still be a lot of drunk Scottish people outside in the cold singing, letting off fireworks and making a nuisance of themselves.
|Mainly because we don't like to be outdone by Edinburgh, who tend to have a bigger party. Bastards.|
