[Ian] First Foot


happy Hogmonay
I have your first foot right here
lang may your lum reek


In Scotland New Year’s Eve is called Hogmonay. It includes going to neighbours, friends and family in a tradition called First Footing.
Lang may your lum reek is a traditional greeting at Hogmonay. It means may your chimney smoke for a long time-a hope for prosperity in the year to come.
