Or first footing. The first person into one’s house in the New Year, for good luck though the coming year should be a dark-haired (1) man, bearing money (2) and perhaps other good (bread, salt, peat, whiskey) (3).

I hope your first guests were auspicious.

1. Dark hair, so it wasn’t a Viking marauder.
2. For prosperity, of course.
3. Sort of encapsulates the base of Maslow’s pyramid, don’t it?



  1. Ah, you musta read my New Year’s Eve post. In our case, that dark-haired man carried a bucket of coal.

  2. Good point, problem was my first visitor was from Vermont… He ate the bread, drank the Whiskey and took the salt 🙂
