2. But it's sung most often when the bells strike midnight on New Year's Eve
3. It was mostly written by Robert Burns, Scotland's national poet
4. Auld Lang Syne roughly translates from Scots into English as "days long gone"
5. The key themes of the song are: let's not forget about old friendships, and let's have a drink
6. Everyone knows you are supposed to join hands. But unfortunately, you all do it at the wrong time.
7. These people are all doing it wrong
8. So when this happened on Millennium Eve, The Queen was right and EVERYBODY ELSE WAS WRONG

10. Don't worry, here's some Scottish people getting it all right
