Auld Lang Syne Tartan

About the Auld Lang Syne Tartan

If you have ever attended a Scottish wedding, ceilidh or to be honest any celebration, at the end of the evening we do like to belt out the words of Auld Lang Syne. Robert Burns wrote the poem Auld Lang Syne in 1788 and it has been set to a traditional folk song traditionally sung at New Year. What does this have to do with the Auld Lang Syne tartan? Not very much as this is a modern tartan designed in response to the fashion for grey tartans, but it is a lovely tartan so Hogmanay or nay you will look very smart whatever you have made in it.

The phrase "for auld lang syne" essentially boils down to "for (the sake of) old times", calling for the preservation of our oldest, dearest friendships as we reflect on the year past on New Year's Eve and recall past joys and sorrows, and who we shared these with.
