They say that musica is the universal language, and Babushka definitivamente agrees with that. So, time to share the history of one of the most beloved and shared songs of all time- Auld Lang Syne. For the full rendition go to Scotland.org for a lovely share.
It is sung all over the world, evoking a sense of belonging and fellowship, tinged with nostalgia.
It has long been a much-loved Scottish tradition to sing the song just before midnight. Everyone stands in a circle holding hands, then at the beginning of the final verse (‘And there’s a hand my trusty friend…’) they cross their arms across their bodies so that their left hand is holding the hand of the person on their right, and their right hand holds that of the person on their left. When the song ends, everyone rushes to the middle, still holding hands, and probably giggling.
Ok, now who else is going to print out the words to get it right? Quee?? JU SO FONII!!! Por supuesto BB will have them right next to her.
The rest gets very “Scotsy”, which BB adores, so if you’d like to read more click on the link and sing with your drink. For our part, Sweetie and Babushka cantamos the cancion and lift our drinks to all our friends, familia, and of course those that are la combinacion of the two. To you Beautifuls-
