When it came to a winter festival, Handsel or Hansel Monday at the start of the year meant a great deal to generations of Scots. Confusion about dates arose when the calendar was changed in September from the Julian to the Gregorian, which was 11 days shorter 2. Many working people resented the imposition of the new calendar with its loss of 11 days and Scottish die-hards began to celebrate Handsel Monday, not on the first Monday of the New Year, but on the first Monday after the 12 th of January. Christmas and New Year or Hogmanay meant little but working people looked forward all year to their holiday on Auld Handsel Monday 3. In the s Auld Handsel Monday was in full swing in Dunfermline. The Sunday schools and churches held special services, the teetotal societies rejoiced over a cup of tea and the Dunfermline Instrumental Band gave their usual Auld Handsel Monday concert 4. In the entertainment included temperance soirees, juvenile gatherings, a penny soiree for the children in the Abbey, and another for the Roman Catholics 5. In his memoirs Mr. The s continued as before but by Auld Handsel Monday had reached its peak and change was on its way. The Victorian Christmas had taken hold in England and was beginning to find favour in Scotland with advertisements for Christmas gifts and entertainments appearing in the newspaper columns and New Year was creeping in as an official holiday.

Do you remember the game after the Cluj Champions League debacle last August? Of course you do, you are still chasing the cold from you bones, it was a League Cup encounter with Dunfermline at Celtic Park, where the Championship club took the game to extra time. The game, the only domestic cup tie in 34 games we have not won in 90 minutes, was six minutes from going to penalties before James Forrest settled things.
This is Celtic and everything goes on the line every game. Turnbull originally signed for Celtic in June last year, before failing a medical. A knee operation, and the best part of a year in recuperation, saw him clinch his dream move yesterday. The question now for the manager is, how does he shape his midfield? Therein lies the answer to our season. I for one am now fully behind the manager for this season anyway…we need to pull together and stop giving the opposition a laugh.
But Ntcham played well and professionally on Wednesday. So too did Ajer. And Christie showed no lack of commitment.

Thousands of voters in west Fife will go to the polls next month to elect two new local councillors on the same day, The Courier can reveal. Residents in Rosyth already knew they were facing a by-election following the resignation of SNP councillor Sam Steele due to health issues and family problems. It has been confirmed the Dunfermline Central ward now also has a vacancy after Conservative councillor Alan Craig stood down.
Local activists had initially been working towards a date at the end of November for the two polls but with general election speculation growing, the date was brought forward. Fifers have been urged to return their annual canvass form and ensure they do not risk their vote, and canvassers are expected to be sent out to properties which have still not replied to forms and reminders sent out in July and August.
