Happy Hogmanay!

Weather permitting, I’ll be going to the Hogmanay Fireworks display in Aberdeen. It promises to be great fun. Let’s hope the weather will cooperate so that it doesn’t get cancelled.

Any of you make New Year’s resolutions? I used to but by the end of January, I’d broken most of them so I’ve given up.

Have a great night tomorrow night, whatever your plans are.

Christmas Lights Switch-on Parade

I’ve only missed this when I was in Glasgow at college. Still, I made it to their event.

The Aberdeen parade is fab. There are lights suspended over Union Street and as the parade passes under each set, they’re switched on. It is so cool to stand up near Union Terrace or closer to the Castlegate and watch the street light up in the distance.

I’ll be heading into the city early so I can catch the pre-switch on entertainment fun and get a good spot to watch it from.

If you can’t get to Aberdeen to see it, I hope you’ll be able to find it online. Promise, once you’ve seen one, you’ll not want to miss another.

See what I mean about how cool it is? Seeing these brilliant strings of lights suspended over the street come to life as the parade passes under it?
