"Auld Lang Syne" is an extremely old Scottish song that was first written in the 1700s. Robert Burns is the person whose transcription got the most attention, so the song is associated with him.
A good translation of the words "auld lang syne" is "times gone by." So when we sing this song, we are saying, "We'll drink a cup of kindness yet for times gone by."
