New Year Eve’s Tradition


>

 Las doce uvas de la suerte, (The twelve grapes of luck).

People in Spain have a peculiar way of celebrating New Year’s Eve. On the 31st of December, we wait until 24:00 with twelve grapes ready to eat with each bell strike.

This tradition is linked to the Puerta del Sol tower clock in Madrid, where the tradition began in 1897 as I’ve found out today. Click HERE.

My best wishes to you all for 2011.
