New Year's Eve at Edinburgh's HogmanayIn Scottish, Hogmanay means the last day of the year. It's a time for celebration to welcome in the new year. And no place does it better than Edinburgh. Its three days of celebrations begin with a torchlight procession on December 30 where 40,000 people carry lit torches through the city. On New Year's Eve itself, the city turns over to music concerts at every corner - the Street Party on Prince's Street, small concerts in the Gardens below Edinburgh castle, and a traditional Céilidh with Scottish music and dances. At midnight, the sky lights up and the ground shakes from the fireworks display. A wonderful way to ring in the new year!
