    This picture is of fireworks at midnight at George's Square.

    The Scots really enjoy New Year (Hogmany) and have some of the world's largest parties. It is considered that the first person over the threshold on Hogmany brings luck (especially if they are tall dark and handsome (some chance!!) not many tall Scotsmen let me tell you!. Warning do not turn up to a party empty handed this gesture would not be appreciated. LOL! I can remember on many occasions being a little worse for wear at these get togethers be prepared (buy some painkillers for the next day)! What about my friend who fell asleep on park bench in Glasgow and woke up the next day in Cambersands England? Now that was a party!!!!

    Glasgow won the Culture City Award some years ago and there are lots of cultural things to do in this city.
