@ Nay's a man hog. Don't worry that's not what it means. I actually have no idea why it's called Hogmanay and no one really knows what it means either. :huh:
I did find this though...
Where does the word Hogmanay come from?
Hogmanay is the Scottish New Year, celebrated on 31st December every year. Never being slow to spot a good excuse for a party, the night involves a celebratory drink or two, fireworks and the kissing of complete strangers â€“ not necessarily in that order.
Where did the word Hogmanay come from?
Nobody knows for sure. Various suggestions have been made over the years and they all sound pretty good from where we are sitting:
from the Gaelic oge maidne ("new morning")
-A Flemish combo of hoog ("high" or "great"), min ("love" or "affection") and dag ("day")
-Anglo-Saxon Haleg Monath ("Holy Month")
-Norman French word hoguinanÃ©("gift at New Year")
the night involves a celebratory drink or two, fireworks and the kissing of complete strangers â€“ not necessarily in that order.
On second thoughts maybe that's why my parents don't want me to go.
Nay, I got your pm.
I'm going out just now, so I don't have time to reply but I'm so glad your pleased with everything!
