Hogmanay - Poem by Ima Ryma

Celebration of the New Year,
In Scotland is called Hogmanay,
One custom to bring household cheer -
Get some river water and spray
All the stuff and people inside.
Then seal the house up snug and tight.
Juniper branches - keep them dried,
Enough to smoke when put alight.
When all are coughing and sneezing,
Then open all window and door,
For fresh New Year air that's pleasing
To enter the house and restore.

When this 'restoration' is done.
Some whiskey for everyone.
