In Turkey, we play Tombala with my family and my friends. All of us eat cips. We have joke each other.
I don´t know yet... but the New Year celebration in México is now celebrate the American style. However in México there are traditions rituals are still preserved whose origins date back to pre-Hispanic times. The various cultures that inhabited what is now the Mexican territory also celebrated the end of one cycle and the beginning of another, which did not necessarily have the duration of the current year. And although each had its own calendars and rituals, in general, theyshared some fundamental concepts and elements. That ‘s why the ancient Mexicans were great observers of nature and even had several calendars such as religious and agricultural ones, which determined all the activities within every sector of society, from planting to the most favorable time to wage war.
As in the rest of the world, New Year’s celebration in Mexico is not necessarily held at home. Families or friends also gather in restaurants that offer dinner and dancing. Those that celebrate at home share various rituals from many of the world’s cultures. It’s very traditional to eat 12 grapes at the moment that the countdown begins to welcome the New Year, representing 12 wishes; lentils are spread around the door as a symbol of abundance; sweeping toward the outside of the home, to drive everything bad from the previous year out of it, or using red underwear that night to attract love, or yellow to attract money…
I think celebrate with fireworks, ringing bells, 12 grapes, a family dinner, sparkling wine, hugs and music set the stage for a typical New Year’s celebration in Mexico. Happy New Year my new friend!.
