In Portugal, we have this tradition. At midnight, at the sound of the 12 strokes from the bell from the new year, we eat 12 dried grapes and we make 12 wishes for each grape.
I've done that last year, and to be honest, most of them had been realized, so this year in the end of the same you guys should try it as well ;)))

A dried grape for each month of the New Year! Is this the one time you drink the bubbly Ricky? Looks like you had a nice celebration.

We don't do the dried grapes. We have black eyed peas on New Years Day for good luck.
