Auld Lang Syne

I do have quite a bit of Scottish ancestry (including some Scottish Jews), but I don't speak Gaelic or wear my kilt a lot, because I am actually American by birth, and acting otherwise would make me feel like a poseur.  That's just me, though.

Nonetheless, this song moves me, and I believe this is how it should be sung, rather than the drunken vowel-fest most of the rest of the world sings it, usually at 11:59 p.m. on December 31.

Enjoy this version, and Happy New Year!



  1. I have to admit...I HATE this song! Haha I think New Year's is sort of depressing so that song is always the icing on the cake. Nonetheless, happy new year!

  2. Thank you, and the same to you! Looking forward to seeing many beautiful things on YOUR lovely blog in 2014. : )
