(the last) YuleTube: Auld Lang Syne

It's been fun doing YuleTube, but now it's time to say goodbye. You say goodbye to the season with "Auld Lang Syne" of course, but there are ways to do Auld Lang Syne and there are ways *not* to do Auld Lang Syne.

Here's an example of not. Dan Fogelberg's song "Same Auld Lang Syne", which I heard way too much on XM Holly Channel and cringed every time I heard it.



Here's how you do it. From "It's a Wonderful Life" the last few scenes, which should bring tears to anyone's eyes.



Finally here's the secret "missing ending" to "It's a Wonderful Life", courtesy Saturday Night Live (with William Shatner introducing!). You always knew Jimmy Stewart had it in him.



Happy New Year everyone!
