12 Grapes!

You and the night and the music; a dangerous combination that never fails! 😉 Thank you dear friends from the US, Kenya, Brazil, Spain, Belarus, Argentina, Cyprus, China, European Union, Canada, Israel, France, Bosnia & Herzegovina, India, Kuwait, Philippines, and Czech Republic! 😉

Have you ever experience an irritating laugh? Chris said that It’s some kind of GeekBuying.comartificial laugh not exactly a genuine one, and every time you hear it, even if you were in another room, you want to block your ears or have your speaker as loud as possible so that you wouldn’t hear any part of it. It’s just too much! 

It is not that someone is laughing at you or even sitting near you. Not our topic anyway.

Repeatedly, you are told by us that nobody knows everything. It is absolutely true. Today meeting with an old friend from Ecuador, I ask if she is ready to do something special in the New Year.

After a bit of silence thinking, she smiled saying: “It’s getting hard for me to stay up until the midnight. I’d probably get ready with the twelve wishes.”Sophie12G

Of course she made me agog about what was that. Johanna, my friend continued that her family had a tradition in Ecuador to have 12 grapes just in the last two minutes of the year, and  while eating each grape, the eater would say a wish for each month of the coming year. She also added that it was her grandmother and mother who introduced that tradition to her.Geekstore Christmas Jumpers

Then I told Mandy about that tradition to look it up coz I didn’t hear about it before, although I heard plenty, which again was confirming that nobody knew everything. He said there was some literature that claimed it was a Spanish tradition originated in Spain, and that it was some kind of superstition.Foreo International

Eating 12 grapes at midnight on New Year’s Eve is both a tradition and a superstition in Spain. Rare is the Spaniard who will risk poisoning their fate for the coming year by skipping the grapes, one for each stroke of midnight.

Americans may giddily greet the New Year downing a glass of champagne and more….

Here’s the funny part: In Spain, they have the twelve grapes at the first twelve minutes of the New Year. That was really completely interesting. But even more interesting that one of my students suggested something else according to her country mentioning that the grapes are not to be eaten actually but should be put in a drink while saying the wishes.
