New Year's Eve, or Hogmanay as we call it in Scotland used to be a big deal.
Indeed to some it still is. They seem to enjoy standing about in the pouring rain for hours in city centres listening to 80's bands and watching fireworks prior to a 5 mile walk home as there are no buses or taxis.
The pubs even used to shut early although more now stay open to see in the bells.
We don't really bother much if truth be told - a couple of drinks and a bit of music and telly and that's about it.
When I was younger I would go round to my pal's house where the drink would flow to the small hours with these two tracks guaranteeing a drunken sing-a-long
Hope you enjoy whatever you do to celebrate the ending of one year and the beginning of the next, if anything.
