Hogmanay: Word Wednesday (Increase Your Word Power)

Hogmanay is a Scottish word and denotes New Years Eve and associated with a good few ancient traditions such as “first footing.”  Note my use of the word “Scottish.” Nothing is more infuriating to a Scot, or this Brit with Scottish blood, than the use of the word Scotch in place of Scottish or Scot. Scotch is the drink!
