Overheated Scotsman at New Year

This makes me all nostalgic as we head into 2007. It has everything, optimism, winter, Scottishness, a connection with my kids through the Raymond Briggs books, Irn Bru.... (just joking). It is very disconcerting for average Scots to head into New Year when the temperature is around 30 degrees at midnight (and I am not talking about fahrenheit). I take solace in the fact that we had hailstones yesterday.

This is more the way I remember it.

Happy New Year Everybody.

It's a great ad and made me smile. I know what you mean about the weather. It doesn't seem right, here in Sicily, that it's New Year's Eve and it's as warm out as on a summer's day in Britain! I miss the snow - well, the look of it, anyway, but not slippery pavements!

I prefer the traditional - there's snow everywhere here. Happy Hogmanay.

Not as disconcerting as it is for an Adelaide girl spending NYE in icy Stockholm. Why are they all outside in this weather?

Hope you have a wonderful 2007.

Genius advert ... almost makes me want to drink the tooth-rotting stuff. Anyone remember that rather disturbing, Damien-out-of-Omen-style "Different" advert they did about 10 years ago?
