Well, it's been a complete year of doing a new thing every day. Expect a wrap up in the next couple of days.
Today I followed different New Year's traditions. (I believe I stole this idea from Sydney originally).
I ate cabbage, which are meant to resemble money and bring fortune in Denmark and the southern U.S.
I ate pork, which is another symbol of prosperity (in Austria, Germany, Portugal & Spain).
(The pork & cabbage were combined in cabbage rolls.)
I also ate 12 grapes, which again is to ensure future prosperity.
It's interesting that most of the traditions involve prosperity. I would think there would be more things that might be important in the new year.
Now I'm off to do something that's not really a tradition - I'm going to bed long before midnight. (I have to leave for the airport at 4:30 a.m. & I'm really tired.)
Happy New Year, all!
