2017 is upon us.

Bidding farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight is celebrated in song around the world; Auld Lang Syne is a Scottish poem written by their most revered and favourite poet Robert Burns in 1788, which was set to music – a traditional folk song and is sung at all the farewells we have to make.

It means something like ‘long long ago’… or for the sake of old times. It’s all about our memories, particularly those familiar happy moments that we remember about our journey through life.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne
And there’s a hand, my trusty friend
And gie’s a hand to thine
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
For auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
For auld lang syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne
For auld lang syne
