If you want to spend a truly unique and unforgettable New Year’s Eve, book your ticket to Scotland and do the  Hogmanay – Scottish New Year celebrations that last for up to 3 days – from December 29 to January 1. Hogmanay has a very long history, dating back to the Vikings.

It comes from the  raids on Scotland and its linked to an interesting prophecy, which is not too kind for the blondes. If the first person who crosses the door of the Scottish home after midnight is a dark-haired man, not blond, like Viking, it is lucky sign for the residents of the home. If you are dark hair, definitely you will be welcomed in home during the Scottish New Year’s Eve, as opposed to the blond, who are bringing a disaster.

Remember, however, that according to the tradition of the house, you should bring a gift such as lump of coal, whiskey, and traditional fruit cake. Best New Year’s Eve will be spent in Edinburgh or Glasgow. There are most spectacular Hogmanay celebrations. In Edinburgh, in addition to many exciting festivals, you will be able to participate in the considered to be the finest in the world, fireworks. Glasgow also organizes a lot of events, festivals and concerts, which will not keep you bored, because the Hogmanay in Edinburgh has the highest reputation.
