Hogmanay, Scotland's New Year celebration, is a 4-day party with some weird celebratory traditions.
Here's our favorite, which is apparently celebrated in other parts of the UK as well:
"At midnight, the man of the house would open the back door to let the old year out and then open the front door of the house to let in the new year. The household would also make as much noise as possible to scare off evil spirits."
Um, what if I want to go out on NYE?!
Scroll down for an amazing video from a Scottish lady named Erin that runs BeautyCreep ;)
Hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Year's Eve! Wishing you luck and sending love for a fabulous 2018!

Miley was one of Chloe's musical inspirations growing up. She has always wanted to be a singer but after graduation, she decided to go to college to be an English teacher. Soon after, she realized that wasn't for her, so she quit school and started playing in a blues band. Her decision to pursue music wasn't exactly what her parents hoped for, as they have always been concerned that the music industry can be unpredictable. While they always want what's best for Chloe, they are still supportive of her singing. The Voice is Chloe's chance to make her parents proud and get validation of her musical talent.
Follow Chloe's journey!
