Disney Pixar’s Brave movie was one of the highlights of the year. And now you can celebrate in traditional Scottish style for the New Year with lots of Hogmanay ideas!
The Scottish Hogmanay celebrations date back to ancient times and now you can celebrate the traditions with a Disney Pixar Brave twist. Just click on the picture above for some fun activities to share with your family!
Cleaning up around the house, hanging good luck charms in doorways and singing ‘Auld Lang Syne’ are just a few ways that Scots encourage good luck to come through their door on the last night of the year.
Brave was one of the best family movies of the year and is now available for a very reasonable $19.99 for the 3 Disc Collectors set.
Princess Merida is a very modern royal who wants to determine her own fate. The tradition is that she should marry one of the suitors chosen by her parents who all compete to win her hand in marriage. Merida has other ideas and runs from the kingdom determined that she will choose her own destiny.
Of course things don’t go quite as Princess Merida planned – an encounter with a witch in the woods leaves her with a very big problem to solve. The voice cast is (mostly) authentically Scottish, with such talent as Kelly MacDonald, Billy Connolly, and Robbie Coltraine. This looks like a Harry Potter reunion where you will also find Emma Thompson and Julie Walters!
Look out for Merida in the Disney parks. You can find her in Magic Kingdom in Disney World, and near It’s a Small World in Disneyland.
