With tomorrow being New Year's Eve, how many of you will be belting out the words to "Auld Lang Syne"? It is actually a Scots poem written by Robert Burns in 1788. It is well known in many countries and its traditional use being to celebrate the start of the New Year at the stroke of midnight. The title translated literally means "old long since" but is loosely defined as "for the sake of old times".
Most don't know the actual words to the song, but after a few cocktails, everyone gathers together and does their best! Have a safe evening on the last night of 2013!!
