New Year in Scotland !

On the last day of the year we celebrate the end of a year and the beginning of another! At midnight there is a countdown – ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one….. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Everyone sings a Scottish song called Auld Lang Syne that is originally a poem by a Scottish man called Robert Burns. The words ‘Auld Lang Syne’ translates from an old Scottish dialect to ‘Old Long Since’. The song is about love and friendship!

Everybody stands in a big circle, crosses their arms, hold hands with the next person and sings….

‘Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

And never brought to mind,

Should auld acquaintance be forgot;

For auld lang syne’
