Spain has a tradition I imagine my family will start to take part in. Once the clock strikes midnight, if you are able to fit 12 grapes in your mouth at the same time you will have good luck for the next year. This is a fantastic tradition as it is a bit silly, fun and healthy. It may not be the craziest tradition on the list, but it is one that may be fun to incorporate into your next New Year’s party no matter where you live. Some traditions forgo the shoving of a mouthful of grapes and instead eat 12 grapes in the last 12 seconds of the year. Each grape is eaten as a way to signify one month of the year in which they wish to gain good luck.
