Auld Lang Syne:
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And 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.

And surely you'll buy your pint cup!
And surely I'll buy mine!
And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

We two have run about the slopes,
And picked the daisies fine.
But we've wandered many a weary foot,
Since auld lang syne.

We two have paddled in the stream,
From morning sun till dine.
But seas between us broad have roared
Since auld lang syne.

And there's a hand my trusty friend!
And give us a hand o' thine!
And we'll take a right good-will draught,
Aor auld lang syne.

Isn't it funny, how many time's we've all heard dis song 'n nefur really new da lyrics or what it efen means? Wouldn't it be's funny if it' meant 'Big Pink Elephants'??? MOL!It is indeed a Scottish song written in da 1700's. Da song got most recognition by Robert Burns, so da song is associated wif him.
A good translation o' 'Auld Lang Syne' is "Time's gone by"..so when we sing dis song, we r sayin' "We'll drink a cup o' kindness yet, for time's gone by.." Dis song sybolizes 'endin's 'n new beginnin's"...weather U be's catebratin' ol' times gone by, time's long long ago, or days gone by, we all feel it in our hearts, those times we've shared wif furiends, furmilies 'n cherished loved ones. The ballad o' Old Lang Syne was printed in 1711 by James Watson. It is a furry contagious song fur shur! Da song sang on Hogmanay or New Year’s Eve quickly became a Scots custom dat soon spread like wildfire to other parts of da British Isles. As Scots, including English, Irish and Welsh immigrants, settled 'round da world dey took with dem dis old tradition. In America, da Canadian band leader Guy Lombardo in 1929 used it in his New Year’s Eve catebrations through his annual broadcasts on radio an' television. Da song soon became his trademark and da rest, as dey sez, is history. Dis song is heard all ofur da world in many languages now. It's kewl in Finland, da verse goes somethin' like dis: "Fureindship shall nefur end, but will last furefur, Great then is our joy, once we meet 'gain. Our road may separate, the memories will remain. So thank U fur efurthin' 'n bye farewell".
So to catebrate our long furiendship, we'll drink cattynip wine 'n catpagne, 'n relish memories o' long ago~ I love's U all 'n I am so happy Catster is here fur us in good times 'n bad...in sickness 'n in health, we cherish ALL our memories made here~! HERE HERE, CATSTER!~
Here's to U, our grand furiends we love's so mush- *Milo put's his paw way up high in da air* 'n to U, a Happy Healthy, most Prosperous New Year!!

Big Hugs 'n pawsome nudges,

Thank U fur readin' my diary!!~

MILO



Drink. Kiss. Be merry. Maybe make a resolution's or two or sefenty-five~!

Happy New Year!
Interesting stuff there, Milo!
I don't know what song if any the Dutch peeps have, but my 'Oma' said there were all the church bells ringing and the ships in the harbors were tooting their horns, and a lot of other loud noises in the streets, like car horns...all at the stroke of midnight! I think us kitties would go and hide!
I am not sure if meowmy could keep 75 resolutions, MOL, MOL!
