Auld Lang syne, for old friends

So many of us will be singing Auld Lang Syne at midnight tonight. first there'll be the countdown and then the raising of glasses and kissing and wishing each other a Happy New Year. Then everyone will link arms in a circle and sing a rowdy version of Auld Lang syneby Robert Burns.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
For the sake of auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my friend
For auld lang syne
we'll drink a cup of kindness now
For the sake of auld lang syne

What it means is that we shall be thinking kind thoughts and raising our glasses to all those friends and acquaintances that have fallen by the wayside. It's a lovely message and just right for New Years Eve. So here's to all the people who have crossed our lives and made the world a better place for us but that aren't part of it anymore. Their kindness is not forgotten because it has helped us on our way.

Happy New Year everyone.
Buon anno
Bonne Annee
