Lismore NYE Hogmanay & Hooley Disco! 2018 and NYD Hootananny 2019!

Hogmanay in Scotland stands out first and foremost as the Eve of Scotland’s greatest feast.

Although customs vary from location to location in Scotland., the tradition of Hogmanay remains unaltered – the exchanging of gifts on 31st December to bring in a happy and prosperous new year.

The origins of the word Hogmanay is very much disputed, but it is possible that it is derived from the French alliances – circa 1560. In 1604 the word Hogmanay was very much evidence.

Another plausible explanation comes from the French language which supplied many Lowland Scottish words.

“Hoog” – High or Great.
“Min” – Love or Affection.
“Dag” – A day.

Thus we have “Hoogmindag” – Hogmanay – Day of Great Love.
