A guid New Year to ane an a' And mony may ye see

Since I can't be at each of your homes in person, let this serve as my virtual "First Foot" blessings for the New Year:

A lump of coal, that your hearth will stay warm

A loaf of bread, that you may never go hungry

A handful of salt, to give flavor to your life

A coin, to bring prosperity

A dram of whiskey, for celebration & cheer

We've had our bonfire & set off the fireworks, to bid the troubled old year goodbye;

Now, we offer up prayers for God's blessings & protection for the coming journey, trusting that we'll strengthen the bonds of love & friendship with those in our lives, & will welcome new friends we meet along the way.

Blessings from Meg's Garden

I think more than ONE dram is in order to celebrate the victory that I am dedicating to you.
Um... your devotion DID cause you to lean toward You-tah... right?
