It’s a very important holiday in Scotland and it’s called Hogmanay. When it’s midnight (12.00), people sing a song called Auld Lang Syne. They drink whisky (or champagne). They have parties and they go from house to house to see their friends. First footing is a famous tradition. It’s good luck when the “first foot” (the first person to come into yr house after midnight) is a man with dark hair. You’ve  good luck  for the whole year.
