Wordless Wednesday: Hogmanay

Although I'm fairly sure this photo wasn't taken at Hogmanay, this time of year will always be associated with my parents and their wider families. Being Scots, Hogamany is far more important to them than Christmas. In this photo: from top left my dad's uncle Bill, my mum, dad, dad's cousin's wife Jean, my great aunt Bessie (barely visible), Dad's cousin Ann, my uncle David and his wife Pat. Kirkcaldy, Scotland, c. late 1950s.

Being Scots, Hogmanay is far more important to them than Christmas, and they used to have huge parties to celebrate the new year.

  2. Aaaagh; hate when i hit the wrong key! My dad loves Hogmanay and his family celebrated it to the max. Seeing my aunts and uncles together like this reminds me of parties past — both those i remember and others which have be ome the stuff of legend!
