Unlike my trilogy, Her Highlander’s Promise is a step outside the box. This is a shorter, more traditional tale of first love, coming of age and good vs evil. A Highland Love Story with just enough sexual content to keep it from being sweet, but also a book suitable for a wider audience.

Happy Hogmanay!!! Happy New Year!

happy-new-year-animated-glitter

In two more days, we will be ringing in the new year, welcoming 2015.

As with most special events and holidays, celebrations around the world vary depending on the culture.

Hogmanay-Scotland

Hogmanay is celebrated on New Year’s Eve, every
year, usually in a most exuberant fashion in
Scotland as revellers take to the streets to see in the New Year.

Celebrations start in the early evening and reach a crescendo by
midnight. Minutes before the start of new year, alone piper plays, bells chime at the turn of
midnight, lots of kissing, and everyone sings Auld Lang Syne.

Elsewhere in Scotland, particularly in more
remote parts, customary first footing and
Scottish dances, or ceilidhs (pronounced
“kayli”), take place. For centuries, fire
ceremonies — torch-light processions, fireball
swinging and lighting of New Year fires — played
an important part in the Hogmanay celebrations. And they still do.

Lets not forget about First Footing!

Traditionally, it has believed that your new year will be a prosperous
one if, at the stroke of midnight, a “tall, dark stranger” appears at your door with a lump of
coal for the fire, or a cake or coin. In exchange, you offered him food, wine or a wee
dram of whisky, or the traditional Het Pint, which is a combination of ale, nutmeg and whisky.
It’s been suggested that the fear associated with blond strangers arose from the memory of
blond-haired Viking’s invasions and pillaging Scotland circa 4th to 12th centuries. What’s more a red-haired first footer is said to bring bad luck.
In many parts of Scotland gifts or “Hogmanays” are exchanged after the turn of midnight. Because the celebration of Christmas was banned for many centuries in Scotland, Hogmanay because the primary way to welcome the new year and celebrate the winter solstice.

The first Monday of the New Year is Hansel ( also spelled handsel)
Monday, traditionally the day on which gifts were
exchanged in Scotland.  The “handsel” refers to small tips and gifts of money that it was
customary to give to servants and the needy at the beginning of the first
working week of a new year. In this respect it is somewhat similar to Boxing Day. The word handsel is  also believed to be related to Old Norse handsal, s promise sealed with a handshake

Happy Halloween and a Blessed Samhain!

WISHING EVERYONE A HAPPY HALLOWEEN AND A BLESSED SAMHAIN!

SAMHAIN: THE ANCIENT CELTIC FESTIVAL THAT SIGNIFIES THE END OF SUMMER (THE LIGHT HALF OF THE YEAR) AND BEGINNING OF  WINTER(DARK HALF OF THE YEAR) IT WAS BELIEVED THE VEIL BETWEEN THE LIVING AND  OTHER SIDE THINNED ON THIS DAY AND SPIRITS CROSSED OVER AND WALKED AMONG THE LIVING. IT WAS A TIME TO HONOR ANCESTORS AND LOVED ONES WHO PASSED.

WHAT DOES HALLOWEEN/ SAMHAIN HAVE TO DO WITH ROMANCE YOU ASK?

Halloween was also a time, when spirits might give messages to people. In some areas, it was traditional for unmarried girls to pour molten lead into water. The shape that the lead took when it hardened was seen as a clue to the professions of their future husbands.

A traditional Scottish form of divining one’s future spouse is to carve an apple at the stroke of midnight on Halloween in one long strip, then toss the peel over one’s shoulder. The peel is believed to land in the shape of the first letter of the future spouse’s name.

Unmarried women were told that if they sat in a darkened room and gazed into a mirror on Halloween night, the face of their future husband would appear in the mirror. However, if they were destined to die before marriage, a skull would appear.

Trick or treating

The tradition of dressing in costumes and trick-or-treating may go back to the practice of “mumming” and “guising,” in which poor people would disguise themselves, not only to hide from evil spirits, but so they could go door-to-door, asking for food. Early costumes were usually disguises, often woven out of straw, he said, and sometimes people wore costumes to perform in plays or skits.

The practice may also be related to the medieval custom of “souling” in Britain and Ireland, when poor people would knock on doors on Hallowmas (Nov. 1), asking for food in exchange for prayers for the dead.
