    This Waverley notebook celebrates the traditional Scottish song 'Auld Lang Syne' sung worldwide at New Year and weddings, and is bound in Auld Lang Syne tartan cloth, woven in the UK. With 92 pages, the mini notebook comes with a retractable pen, and a songbook with four Scottish songs. Parts of `Auld Lang Syne' dates back to 1500 but Robert Burns contributed the song to the 1796 publication `Scots Musical Museum'.

    `Auld Lang Syne' translates as `old long since' and means `times gone by'. The

    song asks whether old friends and times will be forgotten, and

    promises to remember people of the past with fondness: `For

    auld lang syne, we'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet.' It is the most commonly sung song for English-speakers on New Year's Eve, popularized by band leader Guy Lombardo in New York in the mid 1920s, who first heard it sung by immigrant Scots in London, Ontario, Canada. It is now a New Year tradition sung around the world.
