Hop-tu-Naa 2024

October 31, 2024 in Isle of Man

Hop-tu-Naa is observed on October 31, 2024. Hop-tu-Naa is a Celtic festival celebrated in the Isle of Man. Predating Halloween, it is the celebration of the original New Year's Eve. For modern Hop-tu-Naa, children dress up and go from house to house with the hope of being given sweets or money, as elsewhere. However, the children carry carved "turnip" lanterns rather than pumpkins and sing Hop-tu-naa songs. In older times, children would have also brought the stumps of turnips with them and batter the doors of those who refused to give them any money, in an ancient form of trick or treat. This practice appears to have died out. (With material from: Wikipedia)
