Auld Lang Syne

I think it’s becoming a tradition for me to title my last blog entry of the year as “Auld Lang Syne”, just like its a tradition to sing Auld Lang Syne at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Day. 2008 is coming to an end soon. Is time moving faster as we grow older? Why don’t I remember time passing this fast when I was young? Seriously, I haven’t had enough of 2008. It was an amazing year for me.

I always spend the last day of the year looking back at things I’ve done. It’s quite easy when you have a blog to refer to. 2008 has been a great year for me except for that one major screw up in life. Let’s hope 2009 can be just as good if not better.

I always end the last post of the year with this song. Auld Lang Syne is a song that everyone sings on New Year countdown. But not many people knows what does it means. Auld Lang Syne actually means old friends and days.

Here is a very interesting version of Auld Lang Syne, hope you enjoy the last few hours of 2008. Happy New Year to you.

Mairi Campbell & Dave Francis – Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
For of auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup !
And surely I’ll be mine !
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We twa hae run about the braes,
and pou’d the gowans fine ;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
sin’ auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
frae morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
sin’ auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
