It Was Happy Hogmanay at Hutchison House!

Hutchison House rolled in the New Year in Scottish fashion today by celebrating Hogmanay.

Hogmanay is the Scottish word for the last day of the year, where the festivities usually last well into the first day of the New Year.

Today from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., the community was invited to share in this celebration by sampling traditional Scottish eats including the Scotch Black Bun, Clooty dumplings, Scotch eggs, oatcakes, and haggis.  

It was truly wonderful to have the opportunity to wander through the Hutchison House museum, one of the many places throughout the city that have been on my bucket list to visit. I enjoy so much learning more about the history of the former residents and families of our community.

Great conversations and New Year's greetings were shared amongst the visitors as fiddle and bagpipe music played throughout.
