“Auld Lang Syne”

December 31st Celebrates The Song Auld Lang Syne

Today on, “Days to Remember,” we celebrate the holiday song called, “Auld Lang Syne” but who wrote this New Years Day Song?

The song started out as poem as most infamous songs do but it was written by Robert Burns, and was later set to tune as traditional folk song.

It is well known in many countries, especially in the English-speaking world, its traditional use being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight.

Today’s YouTube presentation brought to you by user name, “Auld Lang Syne” to remind George that not all was forgotten.

Today’s YouTube presentation brought to you by user name Paul from MN brings to the ending clip of that infamous move.

Remember as you cross over to the New Year that no person is ever a failure as long as you have friends!
