If I’ve learned one thing about Edinburgh since arriving on the 29th, it’s that this city knows how to have a good time. The New Year’s Eve celebration called Hogmanay is one of Scotland’s biggest festivals. And unlike most NYE celebrations, this one is three days long!
The Torchlight Procession is always on the 30th and is the opening event for the Hogmanay parties. Last night, I snagged a £10 torch and made the walk from Edinburgh’s Old Town up to Calton Hill. It was a fire hazard for sure, but I safely made it through the evening event without lighting myself or any other passersby on fire! SUCCESS.
