Finally, Scotland also has differing traditions for the holiday season. Christmas is traditionally less important (people working on Christmas Day is still quite common, and almost everyone is back at work by the 27th), with an increased emphasis on New Year's Eve (known as Hogmanay). Hogmanay is, more or less, a gigantic booze-up. Ceilidh music and the singing of Auld Lang Syne are also very common. Street parties are held - most famously in Edinburgh - and [[Creator/TheBBC BBC Scotland]] has an evening of programmes dedicated to it. Both New Year's Day and January 2nd are BankHolidays in Scotland, basically to deal with the almighty hangovers from Hogmanay. Hogmany programming traditionally revolved around the late, great Rikki Fulton's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSDaNIdmV-Y Last Call]]'' monologue prior to the bells. Over time this has been replaced with ''Chewin' the Fat'' and ''Series/StillGame'' specials and football-themed sketch show ''Only an Excuse''. Creator/TheBBC coverage is often mocked as consistently being downright awful for [[TheEighties some unfathomable reason]].

** The Twelfth Doctor has a strong Glaswegian accent and the show is mining this for jokes, including an entire speech in "Deep Breath" about his eyebrows wanting to become independent and that now he's Scottish, he can really start complaining. StevenMoffat is himself Scottish.

->''"[A] notion has been entertained that the moral spine in Scotland is more flexible than in England. The truth however is, that an elementary difference exists in the public feelings of the two nations quite as great as in the idioms of their respective dialects. The English are a justice-loving people, according to charter and statute; the Scotch are a wrong-resenting race, according to right and feeling: and the character of liberty among them takes its aspect from that peculiarity."''
