A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.”

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auld_Lang_Syne:

"...auld lang syne literally means "old long since", but a more idiomatic English translation would be something like "long long ago",[3] "days of long ago", or "olden days". "For old times' sake," or "to the (good) old days," or "To days (or times) gone by" may be modern-day expressions, in common use as toasts, that capture the spirit of "for auld lang syne". Although the song begins with a question whether old times should be forgotten, the song is generally interpreted as a call to remember long standing friendships.[11] "

FINALLY:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 12/30/15:

A customer was continually bothering the waiter in a restaurant. At first he’d asked that the air conditioning be turned up because he was too hot, then he asked it be turned down because he was too cold, and so on for about half an hour.

Surprisingly, the waiter was very patient. He walked back and forth and never once got angry. So finally, a second customer asked him why he didn’t throw out the pest.

“Oh, that man? I don’t care.” said the waiter with a smile. “We don’t even have an air conditioner.”

Auld Lang Syne

Words believed to be written by Robert Burns, 1788[2]
(25 Jan 1759 – 21 July 1796)
(There is some thought that Burns merely first recorded these ancient words at that time.)

Set to the tune of a traditional folk song (Roud # 6294)


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

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

We twa hae run about the braes
And pu'd the gowans fine
But we've wander'd mony a weary foot
Sin' auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl't in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin' auld lang syne.

And surely ye'll be your pint stoup
And surely I'll be mine
And we'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne.
