Last year, 31 December 2009, I was in the big R and hosted a New Years Eve get together at my mom's house. I wanted to do something different or special when the clock struck 12. I went online and googled "News Years Eve traditions." I wanted to see what thing people did on New Years in different countires. I read a bunch of things that I don't really remember, but one thing I did use was that in Spain some people put 12 grapes on skewer and at the stroke of midnight if you eat all of the grapes in a minute you will have good luck for the year to come. Or something like that! Anyways we all had grapes at 12 last year. This year I did it again. It is my new tradition!
