“Auld Lang Syne” Lyrics

Happy New Year!

“Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of 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.”

Robert Burns, Auld Lang Syne

Shortest Day of the Year!

Happy winter solstice!  Stay warm…nicer weather is only 3 months away!

Maybe this is why we put lights up…
