Everyone raise their glass! It's time for a New Year's Eve tradition, Property Brothers' style.

We all know the classic song, 'Auld Lang Syne'. But most of us don't know why exactly we sing it to ring in the New Year.

We're going to break it down for you.

Originally a Scottish tradition (which is appropriate, considering the Bros are Scottish--remember the kilt shot?!), you're meant to form a circle and join hands with your neighbours to sing the song. Then, right before the last verse, you cross your arms and join hands again, then rush into the centre of the circle all together. Fun, right?

The lyrics are another reason. Originally a Robert Burns poem, the reflective verses are often played at other endings/ beginnings. Think funerals and graduations.

Obviously, this version is the best rendition yet, because it's sung by the Property Brothers' team!

Watch below and have a safe and Happy New Year!
