Dave_in_PB Sez: Happy New Year Everyone!
A Scottish Tradition, the first foot through your front door at new years brings luck for the house. My Grandmother always said it should be a tall dark stranger. Just at midnight grab a nice bottle of single malt and present yourself at your neighbors front door. State your purpose by yelling "Hogmanay" (hog-man-nae) Once inside, the pleasant women of the house are obliged a sweet kiss and each gentleman a dram of the single malt scotch. If you've made it through this ordeal without being arrested proceed to the next neighbors home and repeat.
Happy New Year Eveyone!
