I hope you’ve been enjoying some of our festive content while our office is shut for the holidays. Rest assured, normal service shall resume in January – but for today, I’d just like to wish you a very happy Hogmanay.
A gentleman from Fife (“The Kingdom”, etc) asked me recently why I had returned to Scotland for New Year’s, declaring that “there will be no Hogmanay” this year with all the lockdowns and tier restrictions. I explained to him that Hogmanay occurs at the end of every year, government policy notwithstanding, and even if celebration is being limited by government action, we can all still celebrate it as much as we are able to.
With the end of 2020 now finally within our grasp, I hope you’ll be raising a glass with me tonight, and toasting to a better 2021. Whether you drink whisky or not (I’ll be breaking out the Octomore Virgin Oak), I hope you have a glass of your favourite tipple in hand to reflect on the trials of 2020 and look forward to a bright(er) New Year.
From myself and all my colleagues at Southbank Investment Research, I wish you a very Happy Hogmanay. Sláinte!
All the best,
Editor, Capital & Conflict
