The Twelve Grapes of luck is a Spanish tradition that dates back from 1909. Some vine growers started this custom of selling huge amounts of grapes a year that they got an excellent harvest.
The tradition consists of eating a grape with each bell strike at midnight on December 31st. If you eat them all twelve up you will have a prosperous year.
The Twelve Grapes
Fireworks and Noisemakers
The Chinese believe that if you make a lot of noise, that will keep the bad spirits away.
American and French people have adopted this tradition as a way to celebrate the New Year.
Everyone kisses, exchanges good luck, greetings, and toasts Champagne to the New Year.
New Year's resolutions
New Year's Eve has always been a time to look forward to the coming year. It's a time to think of the changes we want to make in our life.
Most of New Year’s resolutions are made in anticipation of the new year and new beginnings. However, these resolutions are seldom fulfilled.
Friends and family exchange New Year's resolutions kisses and wishes.
Kissing under the Mistletoe
The Druids considered the mistletoe a plant with miraculous properties and a protection against witchcraft. If enemies met under the mistletoe in the forest, they had to stop fighting until the next day.
This is the origin of the custom of hanging a ball of mistletoe from the ceiling and exchanging kisses under it, as a sign of friendship and goodwill.
Nowadays, if a couple in love kisses under the mistletoe, it is a promise to marry.
Red & Gold
The red colour in Chinese culture means good luck. So red is just a symbol of good luck in the coming year.
Golden colour is traditionally the colour used in imperial service. The golden colour symbolises wealth and also happiness.
These colours are used in decorations, candle lights and shiny garlands.
