2018: Happy Hogmanay & New Year!

As has become our custom, we take a break from serious blogging to welcome in the New Year with an exchange of greetings, favourite seasonal music, comical stories and jokes, all of which must fit into the category of “good clean fun”.  Enjoy! 

Warning:  anyone allergic to the “music” of bagpipes (!) should avoid the above video!

Happy New Year folks! 

Happy Hogmanay… & New Year!

A wee touch of Scotland to mark Hogmanay – New Year’s Eve.   

I did try to find some videos of humour with a Scottish flavour but, as a native born Scot, I’m ashamed to say that every single video I tried contained crudity to a greater or lesser extent – no good clean fun at all, so, while there were some hilarious one-liners in them, especially the Rev I.M. Jolly videos, none are suitable for posting here.  I then turned to videos of the old White Heather Club shows to recreate some of the national song and dance fun from those years, before pop bands took over Hogmanay and ruined it, but they’re all too lengthy, or so I thought – if anyone disagrees, feel free to post them.  

This is just to allow some light relief as we approach the New Year – which promises to be a very interesting year indeed, to say the least.  So, share your jokes and stories, songs etc. I have a  story about the Alexander Brothers featured in the video above, from my days in the Legion of Mary, but will keep it for the comment box.  What, I hear you ask, does the Legion of Mary have to do with the Alexander Brothers? Keep guessing!
