Happy Holidays to you as well. Have you heard about all these interesting new books? Rowan Williams discusses them here: http://tinyw.in/H52x

Happy New Year to you Terri and all your loved ones as well; I hope that you have a joyful and peaceful start to the year. A big woof to Tilly.

Dear Terri, I would like to wish you on my turn Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year, full of health, good luck, love, smiles and warmth!

Happy new year to you and your family! Wishing you a beautiful, healthy, happy new trip around the sun.

I rarely comment on here, but always read. Your blog has sent me off in so many different and amazing directions. Just to wish you a very happy and healthy 2015.

Wishing all the best for you and yours, Terry.
Myth & Moor has provided a much appreciated anchorage tucked into a wondrous bay
inspiring early morning views.

Thank you for the glimpse of Devon and your life as well.

Wishing you a happy and joyous 2015.

I would also like to wish you health, happiness, and continued creativity in the new year. Thank you so much for Myth and Moor; my accidental discovery of it this year has been one of the real blessings of 2014. A very happy new year to you and yours!

I'd like to second the other comments--what a nice bunch of readers you have. Wishing you a healthy 2015.--hart

Happy New Year in Myth and Moor, our magical hostess, Tilly adventures and all the beauty, mystery
and gifts of magic we find here. My head injured son was hospitalized after frequent falling down, in
early December so I have not been able to bring comments and poems here. He is now recovering
(whew!) and he will have to be in a wheelchair now and has to move to a different nursing home.

So it will be a happy new year for our family, too. Just a little different.

Here, on and in Myth and Moor we learn the luck and light of difference; so once again, Happy New
Everything!

Though I'm of Irish blood, and you are deep in England lands, I'm sending a greeting traditional...In Scotland, New Year's Eve marks the first day of Hogmanay, a name derived from an Old French word for a gift given at the New Year. There's a tradition at Hogmanay known as "first-footing": If the first person to cross your threshold after midnight is a dark-haired man, you will have good luck in the coming year. Other customs vary by region within Scotland, but most involve singing and whiskey! So, sung by Dougie MacLean - "Auld Lang Syne" a Scots poem by Robert Burns in 1788 and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. http://youtu.be/PER8f7bQIlg

thank you for myth and moor. this is a good place to visit. happy new year.

First Footing is also celebrated in parts of England, Michelle, most notably in Northumbria and Durham I think I'm right in saying. The First Footer should also bring with them a piece of coal, a silver coin and a spoonful of salt, representing warmth and heat, wealth and food for the coming year.

I've never heard the Dougie MacLean version, thank you Michelle! I also like this one sung by Mari Campbell & Emily Smith, http://youtu.be/LrhKkDyXFdg?list=PL1CB8A0B175BDF9FA

I wish "happy New Year" to everyone here, wherever in the world you are, with love from Pepper (my Tilly-look-alike dog) and me on the coast of Nova Scotia.

I'm so sorry to hear this Phyllis but glad it is working out for your son. And it's good to see your name here again. I hope 2015 is a better year for you and your family. Hugs. - xo, Chris

What a sweet picture of Tilly! My husband is not pleased with my constant mentioning of how wonderful life would be with a canine companion... but I'm wearing him down. =)

Oh that's so nice of you. Thank you.
