Hogmanay in Stonehaven

Happy New Year! I wish all my dear friends and family a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2010. We spent Hogmanay (Scottish for New Year's eve and day) in fishing village Stonehaven, half an hour drive away from our home, watching the famous Fireballs Ceremony (click here for more background information about this yearly event). Dressed up with multiple layers, we got ourselves a good spot well before the mass of people arrived. It only meant waiting in sub-zero temperatures for nearly two hours. Despite the frozen toes it was definitely worth it! View a short video I took here:

A much better overview is given in this video created by the organisation itself.
