What images sum up being a Glaswegian to you? What did we miss? Read on Glasgow, leave a comment below, keep abuse to a minimum please.
16. The Krankies @ Pantomime
A Panto without the Krankies? Is no panto at all. Hold the bus. Wit de ye mean John Barrowman and the “Hoff” got top billing?
15. Singing Kettle @ Everywhere

10. Old Firm
It’s a somewhat sad reflection but you know what areas of the city you can wear your strip and what areas you can’t. Especially on Old Firm day.

Glasgow Green or George Square at Lunchtime, Pure Belting.
Hogmanay does not have a time scale, it will go on as long as it has to, Hogmanay falls when the last man does.
7. Panini Sticker Books
Nonchalantly getting a Panini sticker album free with The Beano and two weeks later being more addicted to collecting stickers than a crackhead with a 10 grand, 6 year cocaine addiction, chasing the dragon.
