Here's To "Auld Lang Syne"

Yes, probably one of the most worn out songs in history, "Auld Lang Syne". But it's traditionally used to mark the end of each year as the old blows out with the wind and the new rushes in. So, if you don't know what it means, The song's name is in Scots, and may be translated literally as 'old long since', or more idiomatically 'long ago', or 'days gone by'. Click here to learn more about 'Auld Lang Syne'.

So today, the year comes to a close and I wanted to wish each and everyone that stops by my 'Forrest' and says hello and shares a kind word, a safe, wonderful, prosperous and happy new year. As the song quips...

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

May old aquaintances never be forgotten, and new ones be around long enough to become old ones... Have a safe and happy one everyone.

Best Wishes from Aunt Jackie and Uncle Richie :)
