You always know it’s an important celebration here in New Jersey when the festivities include fireworks. Tonight there will be many fireworks to accompany the
champagne toasts, singing of the traditional Scottish folksong “Auld Lang Syne,” (literally, Old Long Since, meaning long, long ago) and ringing of bells.
Auld Lang Syne is interpreted as a call to remember long-standing friendships as it recognizes the ending of one period of time and the beginning of another (or of an event marking a rite of passage). Brad shot these fireworks a few years ago as part of an end of the school year celebration.
