Baby's First New Year


Hurrah, it's your baby's first New Year! Time to shower your little one with festive cheer, and share a fond memory with everyone you hold dear!

Celebrations are a time for love, togetherness, and the sharing of joy. As always, there's a piece of beautiful music for every occasion, to ring in the new year with our hopes and dreams for what's to come, and to look back and cherish the moments that have passed.

Auld Lang Syne is sung across the globe, to herald the New Year in with style. The lyrics are by the Scottish poet Robert Burns, and 'auld lang syne' essentially means 'for the sake of old times.'

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And auld lang syne!

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne.

With its poignant folk melody, this song has become a universal symbol of renewal and new beginnings. The lyrics are about sharing a drink of friendship – so it's time to nurture precious family bonds while this precious moment lasts.

Kids love celebrations! A newborn will respond instinctively to the joyful emotion of the music. For older children, the excitement as the clock strikes will become a momentous milestone – and they will pounce on the chance to stay up late, party, and eat fancy food! The new year, the fireworks, and this festive folk song, will be a constant in your children's journey of life, a time for all the family to look forward and look back together.

Here is a rousing rendition of Auld Lang Syne with orchestra and chorus. The cathartic emotion of this recording made us tingle all over - Happy New Year from all of us at Bach to Baby!
