Scottish Traditions: Some of the Weird Stuff We Do
Play • 56 min

This week Chris and Rory (alas, no Jonny again this week) talk about some of the Scottish traditions that take place around the country at the beginning of the year. 

We discuss and marvel at all of the below: 

The Loony Dook (cure your hangover in the North Sea)
Kirkwall Ba (it's a sport apparently) 
Burning of the Clavie (lots of fire)
Up Helly Aa (even more fire, plus some Viking stuff)
Spitting on the Heart of Midlothian (phlegmy rebellion)
