Happy New Year! Check Out These Traditions From Countries Around The World

Happy New Year

Here are a few symbols and traditions of celebrating the new year across the globe …

The baby and the crone have been symbols of the new and old year since the time of the ancient Greeks. Here are a few more symbols and traditions of celebrating the new year across the globe:

• In Spain and Portugal, celebrants gather with 12 grapes in their hands. As the clock strikes midnight announcing the New Year, a grape is eaten for each strike of the clock.

• In Greece, a special New Year’s bread called vasilopita is baked with a lucky coin or charm hidden inside. The bread is served at midnight and whoever gets the charm will have good luck all year.

• Many Europeans eat cabbage or other greens to ensure prosperity for the coming year.

• In Asia, people eat dumplings, noodles, and rice cakes whose names and appearances symbolize long life, happiness, wealth, and good fortune.

• Neapolitans throw pots and pans—and sometimes furniture—out their windows into the streets to celebrate.

• Puerto Rican children throw pails of water out windows to rid their houses of evil spirits.

• The Swiss let a drop of cream hit the floor on New Year’s Day.

• Romanians wish their farm animals New Year’s wishes, and then listen to see if their animals talk back.

Hurricane Harvey – He represented me against my own insurance company when they tried to take my car away from me for minor flood damage after Hurricane Harvey – took great care of the case and won a fair settlement and I was able to keep my car!!!”
