New Year’s Day: the day that counts

Posted on: 30 December 2011

On New Year’s Day when resolutions are all the go I, like many others, will make some but in the interests of personal safetey will keep them secret.

Bear in mind that Hogmanay (to the uninitiated that means New Year’s Day)is the day most celebrated by Scots. Like many of my countrymen I shall do my best to do it justice as I have done every year no matter where I was living at the time.

It is also the day that not only will the international anthem of humanity ‘Auld Lang Syne,’ written by the famous Scots poet Rabbie Burns, echo through the Scottish glens but also through communities in countries far, far away from Scotland on all the world’s continents.

I hope the sentiment of the anthem becomes the standard in life that everyone, everywhere, will come to follow.

But let me not spoil anyone’s enjoyment of New Year. Make your resolutions and do your best to keep them.

Unfortunately because of computer problems this will be my last post for at least ten days. So let me sign off in my native tongue with a traditional wish for you all: Slainte Mhath (Good Health).
