Hogmanay is the Scots word for the last day of the year and is synonymous with the celebration of the New Year. Its origins reach back to the celebration of the winter solstice, although the date has been changed to suit the Roman calendar. This year, because people were not able to come together physically, entertainment company, Underbelly, has shared its spectacular drone show online, in three parts. The visuals are accompanied by words by Scotland's poet laureate, Jackie Kay, and read by Scottish performers, including David Tennant, Siobhan Redmond, and Lorne MacFadyen, with music by Celtic electronic band Niteworks. Enjoy the show!
