Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot?

Monday, December 31, 2012

Does anyone really KNOW? Well after some thorough investigation (Wikipedia), I've learned that "the song begins by posing a rhetorical question as to whether it is right that old times be forgotten, and is generally interpreted as a call to remember long-standing friendships."

So, NO, auld acquaintances should NOT be forgot(ten). Whew! I'm glad we cleared THAT up before ringing in the new year!


Want to hear something else that may blow your mind? 2013 will be the first year since 1987 to have four different numbers in it. Go ahead, I will wait whilst you go through every year since 1987. (I did it too.)

Now, I know that I have dropped a lot of New Year's knowledge on you in this one post, so I will leave it at that. On to more important things like making sure the black eyed peas and greens are queued up for tomorrow!

From our family to yours, we wish you a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year!
