“Auld Lang Syne”

“Auld Lang Syne”

Dear Friends,

Year 2019 has come to an end, now the New Year enfolds in our sight.

I thought often find myself at some New Year Party singing “Auld Lang Syne”, as I am sure so many of us do during the holiday season.

But have you ever wondered what it really meant? The famous phrase translates to days gone by. This popular song so many of us sing or hear on New Year came from an old Scottish song, it was a very old song that many couldn’t even remember until Robert “Robbie” Burns, a Scottish poet collected it from an old man and brought it back to life by 1788.

The phrase “Auld Lang Syne” has previously appeared in similar poems by Robert Ayton (1570-1638), Allan Ramsay (1686-1757), and James Watson (1711) to name a few.

In his manuscript for “Auld Lang Syne”, Burns added a few phrases to modernize it about drinking with your old friends and it became the song we all know of today.

The song begins by asking if the new year means we should move on and let go of not just our old acquaintance but the past, “Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and auld lang syne?”

It seems nostalgic and sad but ends on a positive note encouraging us to embrace the past and moving forward into the year, inviting a friend to join hands to rejoice and cheer for the sake of good times. By ending the song with “And there’s a hand my trusty fiere! and gie’s a hand o’ thine! And we’ll tak a right gude-willie waught, for auld lang syne.”

Our pasts are what shape us into who we are; that includes the good and the bad. We’re a compilation of the people who have been in and out of our lives and the events that transpired. So, we cheer to the days gone by, as 2019 has come to close and we begin anew into 2020.

From our team at Dapper Bird Entertainment, families, and friends, we wish you and your loved ones a Happy New Year!

And to all, a Very Merry Christmas!

And to all, a Very Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone,

It happens to be the time of cheers and celebration. A time to be merry and to wish you all lots of love, laughter, health, and goodness, as we all prepare for the New Year!
This year has been full of excitement and new ventures, it has had also ups and downs, but like most, we had to raise up, dust it off, and continue the walk.
In our path, we’ve met new people, old friends, four legged ones, and those who just passed us by, but at the end of the day, we treasured them all and we want to Thank You!

We are grateful for inviting us into your lives, for spending a few hours together, for all we’ve shared and for all your support. Know that we work to create moments that our families, friends, and neighbors will remember and enjoy for a lifetime.

In honor to those who have left us, we want to remember you and preserve your legacy, teachings, and wisdom. We hope that wherever you are, you are still proud of us, that we continue with you in our hearts and let you know that our world is a much better place because of you.

This year we had to say a few goodbyes but wanted you to know that your time with us was precious and because of your time and lessons, we are stronger, and we’ll thrive. And for those who cheated, lied, betrayed us or felt entitled to simply use us as step tools, we thank you and forgiven you, but please by all means carry on.

And for those whose sacrifices seemed to go unnoticed, or sometimes felt that some days were just too long, we wish you don’t lose hope and that you continue this journey with perseverance, enthusiasm, and a strong heart, knowing we all are in this together, we will win and reach our goals.

We are grateful for another magical year, times where we met people from other parts of the world, visited other countries, and spent time with those who made it possible for us to have unforgettable experiences as we continue.

Thank you for the pleasant surprises, we’re looking forward to more exciting times in this New Year.

We wish to all friends, families, and foes the best, health and good times! Be kind to one another, enjoy the little moments, and the big ones too.

From our family at Dapper Bird Entertainment to yours and to all, a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Happy Holiday’s!

Happy Holiday’s!

Hello Everyone!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and we at Dapper Bird Entertainment want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday’s. This year we have so much to be grateful for, from our team to our clients, we are so impressed by everyone’s hard work!

In the wise words of Vincent Van Gogh, “Great things are done by a series of small things done together.” It is incredibly important to remember, especially during the holiday season; that working in harmony with one another is essential to overcoming stressful times that may arise. Falling into the stress of completing our tasks over the holidays can rob us of special time with family members and moments that we may never get to experience again. If we focus on trying to impress everyone around us and complete everything by ones self, we miss out on the most important holiday joy of simply spending time with those we love.

This holiday, Dapper Bird wants to remind everyone that although the holidays can feel overwhelming, the true joy comes from being with one another and helping those around us!

Happy Holiday’s from all of us at Dapper Bird Entertainment!
