Happy New Year and Happy Burns Day - celebrate by wearing a wax seal necklace with the words AULD LANG SYNE surrounding an arm raising a tankard - cheers!

description -
An arm raising a tankard, in celebration, surrounded by the words FOR AULD LANG SYNE - the phrase FOR AULD LANG SYNE roughly translates FOR OLD TIMES’ SAKE or OLD LONG AGO, and is a song about preserving old friendships and looking back over the events of the year.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne.

The now nostalgic song was credited to Robert Burns in 1788 and it became a Scottish tradition to stand in a circle and sing it just before midnight on New Years Eve.
It’s also sung on Burns night in Scotland, January 25th, to celebrate the life of author poet Robert Burns.
