Every year millions of us take that all very special personal commitment called New Year’s resolution. The prospect of a new year ahead, renewed energy and a brand new start makes us believe we can achieve something great for ourselves and motivates us to sit down and plan for a better year. Funnily enough, most of us have very similar New Year’s resolutions. The most common are: lose weight (join the gym/ get fit), quit smoking and spending more time with family and friends.
Following is a list of some of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions. If you have committed to any of them (or most of them) Edinburgh is the perfect place for you!

The UK is famous the world over for its traditional Christmas Pantomime, where long established children’s fairy stories come to life in a fun family show filled with jokes, songs, dancing and more than a hint of innuendo that passes over children’s heads and leaves adults chuckling with glee. Cinderella, Dick Whittington, Jack and the Beanstalk, Peter Pan and Sleeping Beauty have all been translated beautifully into hilarious family theatre productions.

Storytelling is one of the most ancient forms of art; through it generations were educated and inspired. It is so powerful in stimulating the imagination and taking the listeners to other worlds that it can be quite addictive. It also brings people together rich and poor, the old and the young, while they share the enthusiasm of the storyteller.
In order to celebrate and promote this incredible tradition, storytellers and audiences from all over the world will gather in Edinburgh to take part in the Scottish International Storytelling Festival. This year’s edition will take place from October 19 to 28.

Scottish history is full of battles, knights and castles. Violent disputes, power and resistance, have been common themes. Pride and nationalist sentiment have always been in the hearts of the Scottish people.
Scotland’s history is by no means an ordinary one.
Historic Scotland, an agency of the Scottish Government, is responsible for preserving and promoting Scotland’s historic environment. They have been very successful in sparking public interest in history.
They brought the castles and palaces to life by exploring the subject with interactive activities and events for the whole family.
