Being impatient I had to start this challenge one day early.
On New Year’s Eve, the Finnish tradition is to melt tin horseshoes on a ladle, then dip the hot liquid into a bucket of cold water, where it forms into ‘blobs’ of different shapes.

Good song for the occasion by the Editors:
Some things should be simple
Even an end has a start
