One of the best New Years celebrations I was ever at was in Edinburgh Scotland, thanks Big Davey and Margaret. My favorite way usually entails a few frosty brews. So let's see how it has been celebrated in different spots and in different years.
The Alexander Brothers
Pure Magic......makes you proud to be a Scotsman, recorded TV app 2007
Jimmy Hendrix and the Band of Gypsys [1969/1970]
Hogmanay at Fatsams [2000/2001]
Longest Strip the Willow in the World
Strip the Willow is probably the most popular of Scottish dance tunes on account of its highly physical nature. Participants get a chance to fling partners across the floor. Here Edinburgh's Lord Provost, Lesley Hinds joins Edinburgh's Hogmanay revellers as they dance in George Street, Edinburgh at the Night Afore Fiesta.
And of course it is already 2012 in Australia, and a few other places. So I wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year. Happy Hogmanay!!!!
