Today in the Herald, the Glasgow morning Newspaper, there is one of the
periodic reports from Fiona Houston who is living in the style of the 1790s
for a year.
The part which concerns us is the section which begins "I have been busying
about, preparing for Christmas."
"Yet they must at least have had something to offer New Year callers, for
the first-footing traditions were strong."
The full story can be found at

Only by recovering prophetic and objective modes of preaching, in
faithfulness to the gospel of Christ crucified and in contradiction to
society's profane habits and priorities, can we truly challenge our dying
culture and reveal to it its own possibilities for resurrection.
