12 Grapes Tradition
The 12 grapes tradition is a spanish tradition that consists on eating 12 grapes, one each time the clock chimes, until midnight.
People gather at the Magic fountain and start countdowning to the New Year while eating the 12 grapes. Or they can watch it at home as the event is braoadcasted on TV. Then when it’s midnight you can enjoy a spectacular show of fireworks.
Legend says that people who eat all the 12 grapes during the 12 bell chimes will be lucky during the next year. The grape-munching isn’t actually as easier as it sounds, so be sure to train yourself before December 31st !
It is an amusing tradition though, beginning the New Year with the funny fact of seeing your friends and family with their mouth full of grapes !
Don’t hesitate to seek this pleasant experience if you want to get lucky for next year !
