Auld Lang Syne
A poem by famous Scottish poet Robert Burns and put to a traditional folk tune, Auld Lang Syne is famous across the world. The phrase can be translated as 'old long since', and is considered a call to remember old friendships.
Widely sung during Hogmanay at the stroke of midnight, it's a way to bid farewell to the old year, welcoming in the new.
“Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my jo, for auld lang syne,
We’ll tak' a cup o' kindness yet, for auld lang syne.”
