Grapes, New Year's Eve and Red Lingerie

If you live outside Spain and you want to celebrate New Year's Eve or Cap d'any a different way, then go out and get some grapes, good cava (or champagne) and if you're a gal, wear red lingerie for good luck. It's a fun tradition all over Spain to eat one grape with each clock chime. Families watch TV hosts begin the 12 chime (gong) count down at a major plaza with a clock tower, such as Puerta del Sol in Madrid. Twelve gongs known as the campanadas sound off, and with each gong you pop a grape in your mouth. You must finish all twelve grapes by the time the gongs stop ringing and let me tell you, it's not as simple as it sounds. If you accomplish this feat, you will have good luck for the year. The red under garments is good luck for you and the lucky person that gets a peek at them.

Tip: buy seedless grapes as they are easier to chew and swallow. Grapes with pits slow you down along with an awful grinding of grape pits that make it impossible to finish eating before the gongs stop. Or simply remove the seed before hand to ensure your good luck. Bona sort and FeliÇ Any Nou!
