As the clock strikes midnight in the wild West HIghlands of Scotland, Algy and his friends are celebrating Hogmanay and singing Auld Lang Syne. They will “tak a cup o’ kindness” with you 🙂

          Should auld acquaintance be forgot,     
            And never brought to min’?     
          Should auld acquaintance be forgot,     
            And days o’ lang syne?     
 
          We twa hae rin about the braes,
            And pu’d the gowans fine;     
          But we’ve wander’d monie a weary fit     
            Sin’ auld lang syne.     
 
          We twa hae paidl’t i’ the burn,     
            Frae mornin’ sun till dine;
          But seas between us braid hae roar’d     
            Sin’ auld lang syne.     
 
          And here ’s a hand, my trusty fiere,     
            And gie’s a hand o’ thine;     
          And we’ll tak a right guid-willie waught
            For auld lang syne.     
 
          And surely ye’ll be your pint-stowp,     
            And surely I’ll be mine;     
          And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet     
            For auld lang syne!

          For auld lang syne, my dear,     
            For auld lang syne,     
         We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet     
            For auld lang syne.

Algy and his friends wish you all a very, very Happy New Year xxx

[Algy is of course quoting the lyrics of Auld Lang Syne by Robert Burns, in its original Scots language version.]
