    Thats close Runner. Its when you are the first person across the threshold of someone`s home after the bells. Traditions vary, some people bring gifts like a kind of cake or a bottle of something. It`s supposed to be lucky if you are first footed by a dark haired man. It`s unlucky if someone goes out after the bells have struck and then comes back in before anyone else does. There`s all sort of variants.

    Its kind of why I like New Year (or Hogmanay or Auld Year`s Night) Most people go around being uncommonly nice to each other. There`s a thing in Scotland where we shake hands with people when we see them after the bells, even if it`s someone you know or just saw yesterday. A couple of my friends from England think it`s strange and one is really freaked out by it.

    Yea, that's far too friendly for American's. We barely even know our neighbors :( Sounds like fun though.

    If I didn't have plans tomorrow I would First Foot this thread and a few others. That would be fun. I'll have to remember it for a future year. One when my boys are old enough to let me get some sleep the next morning :p

    It is quite fun, it`s an excuse to walk up to total strangers and ambush them with goodwill!

    BTW I think Bardan first footing the thread is almost a certainty.
    Although now I think of it, I think Addie technically already has.

    Bardan I reposted so you could read that again. Not sure you'll comprehend it the first time.

    I'll translate for you "Wishing good fortune to others in an exuberant manner may rub off on you, the corners of your mouth may start to curl upwards."

    And the rest of the world wouldn't even know because your hidden under the helmet ;)

    Happy New Year's everyone. I have a few resolutions I came up with...

    1) Finish my fanfic
    2) Find a map-creating software that can be used for Star Wars games that is easy to use, unlike ProFantasy's Campaign Cartographer...*grumble-grumble* (It's based on AutoCAD!) Any ideas, anyone?
    3) Be the one to push the doohickey down to blow up the BMC...

    Oh that doesn't sound at all appealing. I will continue to view everyone with derision and suspicion instead.

    So if a stranger knocks on your door at midnight with a fresh baked cake you would turn them away?

    [face_rofl] You think I would actually open my door to an uninvited stranger after dark. That's amusing.
