๐ŸŽถ Auld Lang Syne

Auld Lang Syne was officially recorded by the 18th-century poet Robert Burns. Auld Lang Syne translates into For Old Timesโ€™ Sake. The song celebrates friendships and encourages us to look back over the past year.

The Scottish tradition is to stand in a circle and hold hands while singing Auld Lang Syne. At the last verse that begins with, โ€œAnd thereโ€™s a hand, my trusty friend,โ€ the people cross their arms so that their opposite hands are holding those of their neighborsโ€™ hands. As the song ends, those gathered hurry to the center of the circle in celebration.

๐Ÿ’‹ Midnight Kisses

Ask five different people why we kiss at midnight to welcome in the new year and you will probably get five different answers. The most common belief is that the tradition dates back to ancient Roman times when they would host incredible festivals with a great deal of midnight kissing.

During the Renaissance period, people would attend masquerade balls to celebrate the new year. At midnight, everyone would remove their masks. A kiss would ensure that any evil spirits or forces from the past year would not make it into the new one.

May all your New Yearโ€™s kisses be as memorable as the one we all remember from When Harry Met Sally.
