Happy Hogmanay

If you have been reading this blog for a while you know that I consider my true home to be Edinburgh, Scotland. Milwaukie, Oregon is only temporary :D

I have traveled there many times (even spent Halloween there one year) - but the two other times I would like to be there are during part of The Edinburgh Festival (summer) and on Hogmanay - New Year's Eve. They pride themselves in throwing the largest New Year's Eve party in the world. I would love to be part of it some day.

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."

Remember, frog queen knows of a cool castle, not too expensive, with a graveyard on the want to go....I know you do!!! :D

That makes my New Year's Eve party look like a kids birthday party. I gotta get more fireworks! :D

SlĂ inte mhath!


  1. Happy Hogmanay! May the New Year be filled with all sorts of wonderful Frights!

  2. A Happy Hogmanay for sure! Heres to another great year Froggie, enjoy with Husband!

  3. When do we leave?!?!? That is fabulous!
    Happy Hogmanay!

  4. Back in my University days, I'd spend them at my Viking History Professor's home. He and other Scots (and those who wish they were Scots) gathered round and everyone would tell an anecdote. I invariably sang a tune from that year's Musical production. Should auld acquaintance be forgot...
