Just like people in other parts of the world, people of Scotland Hogmanay also celebrate Gregorian New Year on 1st January.
In Scotland, New Year’s (Hogmanay) is celebrated with several different customs, such as First-Footing, which involves friends or family members going to each other’s houses with a gift of whisky and sometimes a lump of coal.
Edinburgh, the Scottish capital, hosts one of the world’s most famous New Year celebrations. The celebration is focused on a major street party along Princes Street. The cannon is fired at Edinburgh Castle at the stroke of midnight, followed by a large fireworks display. Edinburgh hosts a festival of four or five days, beginning on 28 December, and lasting until New Year’s Day or January 2, which is also a bank holiday in Scotland.
Two smaller Scottish towns, Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire and Comrie in Perthshire, host notable fire festivals at Hogmanay. Stonehaven’s Fireball Festival begins at midnight, with giant balls of fire swung by participants in a parade down the High Street, attracting visitors from around the world.
Other cities across Scotland, such as Aberdeen, Glasgow and Stirling have large organised celebrations too, including fireworks at midnight.
