Best Wishes to People of Tuva

Coming from Scotland, where Christmas is a far less important holiday than David Hutcheon the days we call Hogmanay (December 31) and Ne’erday (January 1), I should perhaps first introduce our traditions. At midnight on Hogmanay, we toast each other with whisky. After that, we visit friends and family, drink more and sing traditional songs. It is important that the first person to enter a home is tall, dark and handsome, and that all guests brings gifts, usually whisky, a cake or coal. The traditional greeting is ‘Happy new year and lang may your lum reek’, which translates as ‘Long may your chimney smoke’.
