Happy holidays and seasons greetings to those that observe & happy Wednesday to all; hope you are all having a great time 😁
Hi all 😁 and welcome to December’s project: Things in Scots. This month I am collaborating with my wife, Susan (☜ follow this link to see and hear her post), and we’ll be posting mostly daily — Things in Scots (great title eh? 😂).
Yule is today’s Things in Scots. Below are a few pics from Glasgow and some of the decorations. A few of the shots are from the European Christmas Market outside the St Enoch Centre (hopefully we’ll see them again next year!). Make sure you get on over to Susan’s site for a wee bit of a history of Yule post.
Best wishes to all and we’ll be back again for Hogmanay 🎉
All the Scots words for these posts are taken from The Concise English-Scots Dictionary, by the Scottish National Dictionary Association. The words chosen will be the generally accepted term, but as in all languages there are regional variations, as well as sub-species variations. For example, an owl is generally known as a hoolet in Scots, but an ool in Shetland & the NE. A barn owl is a white hoolet & a long eared owl, a hornnie hoolet.
As we do these posts, we’re learning as well; so we apologise in advance for any mistakes ☺️
If any of you out there have a burning desire to know the Scots word for anything 🤔, please let us know!
Hae a guid day 😁
