Lang may yer lum reek
The Scots language has a long and colourful history, that stretches back well over a thousand years. Part of its colour isn't just the glorious words, but also the unique sayings. Celebrate the power and spirit of the language with this handsome vintage-style poster, drawn by Stewart Bremner.
Translated to English: long may your chimney smoke.
Meaning: good health and good luck, implied by always having the means to fuel the fire.
Usage: if one of yer friends doesn’t say this on Hogmanay, you’re doing it wrong.
