AULD LANG SYNE
Auld Lang Syne es el título de una canción tradicional escocesa que se canta en todo el Reino Unido y en EE.UU. al final de algunas fiestas y celebraciones sociales, y en especial para dar la bienvenida al Año Nuevo, a las doce de la noche de fin de año. Con la canción se intenta hacernos recordar los tiempos pasados para que se tengan presentes en esos momentos. Los primeros versos son: Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And never brought to mind, We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet, For the sake of auld lang syne.

auld

adj (+er) (Scot) → alt; Auld Lang Syne (song) → Nehmt Abschied, Brüder; for auld lang syneum der alten Zeiten willen
