The first is modern and concise. . The latter is lengthy, and written in old English. It includes rhymes recited by begging children on New Year's Eve. The Burning of the Clavie tradition is especially long, and limited to a particular area, but may show the purpose of New Year's fireworks - to rid the community of witches or evil spirits. .
