Same here since 5 this evening. No dog here, but I heard those of some neighbours barking with fright.

Yes, I was trained to do first footing by my first wife's parents.  They were Geordies.  Ahhh! the days of youth.  Tonight I hope to be tucked up in me little bed by midnight.  Hopefully sleeping if a bunch of idiots are not shooting off fireworks and guns. :Shock:

Benjamin, I remember the lump of coal, and was it also a piece of bread.?   Maybe to symbolise t h e household always having something to eat and a warm house? These were brought into the house by a dark haired person.

I think it was a tall dark stranger he had to be the first over the threshold holding

a lump  of coal a tot of whisky and some bread.

Now days you would phone the Police because a drunk holding a rock was banging on your door.

We were doing it wrong then.  I was not tall, just average.  Not dark.  I was a sort of Beagle colour.  I was definitely no stranger.  Further to all that I really didn't want to do it.  It was cold and dark.  ;)
