Hello my dear brides! I'm sure you are probably wondering what on earth I'm talking about NOW ... I PROMISE when the holidays are over I will be back to my old wedding and event self, but first I wanted to tell you about a tradition we do over here on New Year's Eve, that actually I started doing when I lived up top, i.e. the good US of A!

 

UnderWear

So, it's related to your undies, i.e. underwear, i.e. in Spanish "calzones" (you should have heard everyone laugh when I told them one time I wanted to make calzones for dinner ... whole other meaning over here!). I don't know who started this tradition, but it goes like this: on New Year's Eve you wear either yellow underwear for work, red underwear for love, green for money and white underwear for luck. They must be a gift given to you (you don't buy it yourself), so hubby and I usually give each other our theme for the year in our stockings :). I know it sounds CRAZY but I've been doing it since the first year I met my husband (and the next year we tied the knot, so to speak!). Now, I'm not saying it's the underwear for sure but I figure it can't hurt!

GRAPES

The other tradition is related to grapes. Each guest gets 12 grapes to represent each month and, at midnight, you eat each one and make a wish for the upcoming year. We have a full house this year so we will be buying oodles of grapes!

So, if you want to incorporate a little Latin flavor into your New Year's Eve tomorrow, I say go for it and I wish you all the best, most beautiful upcoming year (and weddings!).

 

Again, any questions or comments re: weddings, anything wedding or Puerto Vallarta related, just post me a line (or PM me) to amishkadesigns@yahoo.com with "two pesos" in the subject heading!

well, that's what I've HEARD so that's what I've done wink.gif. I have a gfriend whose boyfriend thinks it's silly (which isn't so silly when you consider that once I got her hooked on the tradition she met and started dating him ... hmmmm wink.gifwink.gif - so I always get her a pair for christmas ... crazy I know!! But I think it's fun and it always makes us giggle, so there you go!
