Happy New Year (Auld Lang Syne)
“Auld Lang Syne” from a 1788 poem by Robert Burns, literally translates to “old long since".
The original, five-verse version of the poem essentially gets people singing, “lets drink to days gone by”
— traditionally at the stroke of Midnight on New Year's, with a glass of a champagne and a friendly kiss.
