"We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet, for auld lang syne."

"Auld Lang Syne," a Scots poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 and set to the tune of a traditional folk song, is traditionally and widely sung, to bid farewell to the old year and toast friends and family, both near and remembered, at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve. 🥂 🕰️

A variant of the Auld Lang Syne tartan originally designed to commemorate the birth of Robert Burns in 2002, this golden version pensively recalls the last toasts and  clinking of champagne and whisky glasses as the evening winds down and we remember absent friends.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and auld lang syne?

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my jo,
for auld lang syne,
we’lltak' a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup!
and surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak' a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We twa hae run about the braes,
and pou’d the gowans fine;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
sin' auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
sin' auld lang syne.

CHORUS

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere!
and gie's a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak' a right gude-willie waught,
for auld lang syne.
