Correct Pronunciation of "Hogamany"?

Could someone please help with the correct way to say this - is it just like it looks, or does it have an interesting "scottish" twist to it?

I was at Hogmanay for the Millennium and I think My Crazy Former Boss has it correct. However, you do hear different pronunciations depending where you are at. I think Brian's pronunciation is more the way someone in London would say it. Tomorrow, I am having lunch with my friend, Judith, who is from Edinburgh, so I will ask her how she says it, and will post her reply.

Other things you will hear while walking around Edinburgh for Hogmanay:
I lost the keys to my hoos (house).
That looks like a coozy hat your wearin'.
Give us a kiss lads, give us a kiss.

My mother was born and grew up in Lochwinnoch, a small town outside of Glasgow, and she pronounces it hug-man-AY.

There are regional variations. Either Brian or Dick are right. NOT "nee" at the end, tho'

If you really think it's spelt as you put in the title, as opposed to that being a typo, that may be confusing you

I just had lunch with my friend, Judith (3 courses and a pudding), and she says it is Hog-man-ay. She was born and raised in Edinburgh, so I will take her word.

The Laird o' Phelps spent Hogmanay
Declaring he was sober,
Counted his feet to prove the fact
And found he had one foot over.
