Auld Lang Syne
New year’s is a special time where we get to think back on the past year and all that has happened. This year will not be forgotten. It has been a crazy one for sure! There have been many things that have pulled people apart. But there have also been many amazing things that have brought everyone together. One thing that can bring you and your loved ones closer, no matter how far away they are, is the song Auld Lang Syne.
This song is one of remembering, friendships, and gives each of us a sense of nostalgia. It ‘s a song written by Roberts Burns in 1788, though he claimed it to be an ancient song and that he was simply the first to write it down. The rough translation for it is ‘for old time’s sake’. So in remembering the good times in the midst of the bad times, we can all come together and sing this song to appreciate how much we all grew and changed throughout this year!
