I'm not a New Year's guy. I celebrated more when I was younger but now it's just another eve before a day off. However, I do love this rendition of "Auld Lang Syne". I first heard it when Mairi Campbell serenaded Sean Connery during the Kennedy Center Honors.
So - to 2015! May it bring you health, joy & happiness - and peace. Remember - most of us are just tryin' to crack ye old nut. There's much good in the world. Seek it out!

"Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world...and it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One!"

"Now, the tree is decorated with bright merriment, and song, and dance, and cheerfulness. And they are welcome. Innocent and welcome be they ever held, beneath the branches of the Christmas Tree, which cast no gloomy shadow! But, as it sinks into the ground, I hear a whisper... going through the leaves. "This, in commemoration of the law of love and kindness, mercy and compassion. This, in remembrance of Me!"
