For the Mackenzie family, December 25, 1859, was a regular working day. New Year’s Eve, called Hogmanay in the Scottish tradition, was the bigger seasonal celebration in Toronto’s Scottish community. Join the staff of Mackenzie House for an exploration of the Hogmanay rituals of 19th century Scottish Canadians and how they parallel New Year’s celebrations in other countries and cultures.
