Bubbles and Grapes • Happy New Year

December 30, 2012 by Joan Nova in Holidays | 11 Comments

Eating 12 grapes at midnight is a Spanish custom of dubious and humorous origins.

Goodbye 2012.

Out with the old, in with the new. Out with the bad, in with the good.
Happy New Year everyone!

  6. I used to share this tradition with some Mexican friends of immediate Spanish descent. The first time I ever heard of it. A great way to ring in the new year. Love the photos. Excellent. Again, Joan, I wish you and your family the best of 2013.
