You probably have a New Year's tradition, whether you are ringing in New Year's Eve from some exciting foreign country or at home with family and friends. As the new year eve tradition chart below suggests, every country has its new year tradition that makes the party more. For instance, it is customary to eat 12 grapes in Spain – one at each stroke of the clock at midnight on New Year's Eve. In hopes of a travel-filled new year, residents of Colombia carry empty suitcases around the block. Residents of Denmark greet the New Year by throwing old plates and glasses against the doors of family and friends to banish bad spirits. In Finland, people predict the coming year by casting molten tin into a water container, then interpreting the shape the metal takes after hardening.
