A solemn song about old friends having a drink and recalling adventures they had long ago, "Auld Lang Syne" is a Scottish song sung to say goodbye to the previous year. First written down by Robert Burns in 1788, the lyrics and melody are thought to have originated from other literature and music before finally appearing in its modern form in 1799, as part of a Scottish song compilation by George Thompson. Eventually, "Auld Lang Syne" became a traditional part of the Scottish Hogmanay (New Year’s celebration) where people sing it while standing in a circle holding hands.
Happy 2024! We hope you'll have a music-filled, peaceful, and prosperous year!
