What are some of your new year’s good luck traditions?

In France, i always tried to gathered 12 different(round fruits) at home bec. they said.. it symbolizes money, ate 12 pcs of grapes when the midnight struck and make sure that wallets have money on New Years day! I also tried not to get angry too. lol* Amy of KaLidadiS & Moi et mon univers.

Our tradition back home to have 12 different kinds of fruits put in white bowl, my mom wear dotted dress with pocket so she can put her 24 coins to shake when the clock struck at 12 then family gather together around the table with traditional foods and we pray. [ i really missed this tradition with my family back home]. Other good luck tradition hung a grapes by the door. Carlota of My Daily Sunset 2

My beloved mother told us don’t open the money pouches until a few days have passed. Traditional New Year foods are also thought to bring luck, she said 13 different kinds of fruits is good luck, and family together around tables of traditional foods.

My mom used to collect some coins and when the new year comes she put the coins in a bowl and shake it to create sounds. She said its good luck for money throughout the year. And also wearing dotted dresses on new year don’t know why.

I don’t have any traditionals during New Year.

My old folks always told us to avoid spending money on new years day. They said, once you spend on the first day of the year, you like to spend the rest of the year.

I grew up believing that if you have some money on your pocket (whatever you’re wearing) come New Year’s eve it will ensure steady flow of income throughout the year. The other belief is that the main door of the house should be wide open come New Year’s eve so that good luck will be ushered in.
