Hogmanay - How Do You Do Yours?

#1
I came across the following video on YouTube last night and thought what a phenomenal way to bring in the new year, whether you're a Big Country fan or not.

It did get me thinking, what has been your most memorable Hogmanay (new year for you English types) and how did you see in the bells. Bonus points for something bizarre.

I watch Braveheart and drink a case on Tennants and the gob off at sassenachs in Euston Station.

Do you have the price of a ticket sir?

I start drinking about 16.00 then stagger to bed about 23.00. Awakened by the louts shouting in the street around 01.00. As I am awake I use the fact to stagger to the bathroom for a piss.

At home with the family until the bells. At the bells outside with the guns to bring in the New year. Its like a combination of the wild west and Guy fawkes as everyone is outside either shooting or letting off fireworks. Back into the house for a few, awaiting first footers. Normally go wandering down to next door about 03:00 and just keep moving from house to house. Usually get home between 08:00 and 12:00 on the first. Have a bite to eat and get ready for the evenings entertainments.

New year out here is all about community and family enjoying themselves, not the drunken crap that happens elsewhere although it must be said there is no shortage of strong drink, even for the young.

Why do you HTC users all feel the need to keep bragging how you get online these days?

Maybe I should change my signature to:

"Sent using my laptop, which is remarkable considering how slow it grinds with all the porn clogging up my hard drive"

Fucking Hogmanay. What a stupid name. I celebrate New Year by hoping every porridge gobbling cunt dies of an overdose. The druggy cunts.
New Year's Eve is just Hogmanay with added homosexuality.

If it's been sent from my HTC Sensation using Tapatalk then I'm probably pissed.

Speaking as a woman with a Scottish family, the only reason you tight bastards prefer Hogmanay to Christmas is because buckfast and irn-bru is more acceptable as a hogmanay gift than a Christmas present. Pissed up, cheapskate cunts.

Ha, there are better party’s at New Year, every house here has open doors, plenty food, drink,music and women. Folks here spend considerably more on New year than I have ever witnessed at 'community' Christmas events doon sooth. methinks there is a certain amount of envy emanating from south of the 'Mason Dixie' line! :)

I'm usually doing a buffet for 200 odd at my Mother Lodge then seeing in the bells till 9am.

I do miss Late Call, Scotch and Wry, Calum Kennedy, Kenneth McKellar, Moira Anderson, Andy Stewart and Thingummyjig at Hogmanay.

Should auld aqauintance be forgot, they'll turn up reminding you of the money you owe them...

Listen Taggart, I've witnessed those "community" Hogmanays. It basically consists of random Rab C Nesbitt drunk skanks just walking in your house and dribbling utter shite and generally being irritating fuckwits.

Give me the south and a bit of decorum any day. You pikey cunts :)

The only trouble with the new year is that you are pretty sick of seafood by the fourth or fifth. Between the first three or so houses in this glen there we have about five fishboxes of lobster, squat lobster and probably about five stone of prawns (the ones the posh folks call languistines). That is before we start talking about the other rubbish like smoked mackerel and the rest. Ah recessions, don’t you just love them!
