Why do we sing “Auld Lang Syne” on New Year’s Eve?
“Auld Lang Syne” is a Scottish folk song that roughly translates into “Old Long Since” or “For Old Times’ Sake.” It became a New Year’s Eve favorite in the U.S. thanks to Canadian bandleader Guy Lombardo, who hosted an annual end-of-year concert in New York City starting in 1929. In 1965, Lombardo told LIFE magazine that he chose the song “because Auld Lang Syne is our theme song—and was long before anyone ever heard us on the radio. In our particular part of western Ontario, where there’s a large Scottish population, it was traditional for bands to end every dance with Auld Lang Syne. We didn’t think it was known here. When we left Canada we had no idea we’d ever play it again.” The popularity of Lombardo’s yearly concert helped the song become a U.S. tradition to celebrate the end of the year and the beginning of the next, and its status as the New Year’s anthem was reinforced in classic Hollywood films such as An Affair To Remember and It’s a Wonderful Life.

Where did celebrating New Year's Eve originate?
Answer The custom of celebrating old years or new years eve has something to do with the Pagan god Janus (who also is the reason for the name January). Janus was a two-headed deity (or god) who had one head looking at the past (meaning the old year) and the other head looking towards the future (the new year). New years celebrations originated from the worship of Janus.

How did the superstition of kissing at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve start?
Any excuse for a kiss! Some people have the superstition that failing to kiss someone on New Year's Eve predicts a year of loneliness. It is also thought that person you spend the first moments of the new year with will set the tone for the rest of the year. In Biblical times the act of kissing or touching one's lips to those of another (Pr 24:26), to another person's cheek, or, in an exceptional case, even to his feet (Lu 7:37, 38, 44, 45), served as a token of affection or respect. Kissing was common not only between male and female relatives (Ge 29:11; 31:28) but also between male relatives. (Ge 27:26, 27; 45:15; Ex 18:7; 2Sa 14:33) It was likewise a gesture of affection between close friends. - 1Sa 20:41, 42; 2Sa 19:39. Kissing might accompany a blessing. (Ge 31:55). Kissing at midnight on New Year's Eve is common in movie scenes, such as When Harry Met Sally.
