For Auld Lang Syne, Dear Readers
In 1788, when Robert Burns sent Auld Lang Syne to the Scots Musical Museum, he made a point to tell them that he was not the originator of the song. Rather, it had been sung in Scotland for generations. He just had the good luck of putting pen to paper and recording it for posterity. Translated, auld lang syne means for old time’s sake. The song is about the nostalgia of reflecting on all the events that have transpired in the last year, particularly paying heed to the preservation of old friendships. It’s a song about community, fostering a sense of fellowship and belonging for all.
Today, I’m taking a moment to reflect with you, dear readers, on the different things we’ve done together as a community here at Whiskers On Kittens. There are so many posts that I loved this year, and that you loved, too. So, please join me on this stroll down memory lane.
And if that’s not enough Moustache for you, have no fear. There were several other posts at Whiskers that dealt with… well, whiskers.
I could very easily sit here and wax on about all the posts that were published at Whiskers On Kittens in the last year. However, I will stop myself here. Which was your favorite post from 2018? I’d love to know. Please leave a comment in the comment section below letting me know.
