"Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And days of auld lang syne.
For Auld Lang Syne, my dear, for Auld Lang Syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet for Auld Lang Syne."
~ Robert Burns

In case you need the lyrics, here they are. Written in the 1700s by poet Robert Burns, the traditional Scottish song, Auld Lang Syne, which means "Old Long Ago," has become the New Year's Eve tribute to memories and friendship

"Every man regards his own life as the New Year's Eve of time." ~ Jean Paul Richter

New Year's Eve is a night to make resolutions and have fun. Despite a challenging year, the loudest crowd of noisemakers will gather again in New York City's Times Square. That tradition of watching the illuminated ball drop began in 1908, a celebration that dramatically signals the end of one year and the beginning of the next.

Another New Year's tradition began in 1929 when Guy Lombardo and the Royal Canadians first sang their version of Auld Lang Syne over the radio. Until his death in 1977, Lombardo ushered in the New Year 48 consecutive times.

Nowadays millions on television watch Dick Clark report live from Times Square. He's been doing that for over 30 years.

"Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts." ~ Paramahansa Yogananda

Whatever way you choose to ring in the New Year, be happy and stay safe. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of Daily Celebrations. I expect great things for us all next year.
