our first official celebration of 2012!
[BLOG DISCLAIMER #1: There are lots of holidays out there. More than I realized! So we have done a lot of picking and choosing. Some days there may be one, somedays three - whatever floats our boat. But rest assured most days there are plenty to choose from. I will post some links tomorrow if you want to check it out and play along. Hey, the more the merrier!]
January 1st is also "First Foot Day". According to Scottish folklore, the first person to cross a home's threshold on new year's day brings good fortune. That's the Cliff Notes version. To learn more, read here. It's interesting stuff. So in the spirit of my highland ancestors we all "first-footed" when we returned home from our holiday weekend. Perhaps tripling our good fortune for the coming year??
