New Year's Traditions

New Year's Eve traditions right here to help ring in 2020

There's something undeniably nostalgic about the holiday that falls at midnight on December 31. New Year's may be all about looking ahead, but just like different timezones, every part of their world has their own New Year's traditions, from just partying on the beach to actually having Santa Claus come at New Year.

The New Year is upon us and depending on which time zone it is just hours away!


You’ve heard of matching your clothing due to this or that, but do you match your underwear? You want money? Drop everything now and head to whatever is open to buy yourself a pair of yellow undies for fortune and red if you want love.

This is the way they do it in Brazil, up to the point that parents will argue with their children to wear a specific colour and will blame the child if the year goes wrong (as of course the wrong colour of underwear was chosen).

Also, wear white clothes to scare off evil spirits (and make sure to get love or money).

In Spain and some other speaking Spanish countries, at the exact stroke of midnight you should eat 12 grapes for 12 months of luck. At each strike you should eat one grape so many people recommend biting once and keep going until it’s over, to make sure that the luck does indeed truly come.

An odd yet touching tradition is in the city of Talca, south of Santiago in Chile, where relatives go to the cemetery to celebrate the approaching New Year with their deceased relatives.

It all started from one family who decided to do so with their dead relative and soon enough the idea picked up and Talca's mayor opens the cemetery to late hours of the night for anyone who wishes to do so as well.

Classical music and thousands of candles can be observed during this celebration.

→ Be exclusively elegant with these trendy and comfortable footwear!


We’ve all tried talking to animals alas not all of us succeeded. But in Romania farmers have a tradition where year after year after year listen to their animals speak and if they manage to do so, not only they are a great farmer but it is said to be a sign of good luck for the upcoming year.

→ Look stunning with these fine accessories!


Christmas Trees are put up to celebrate New Year rather than Christmas in Russia and other post-Soviet Orthodox countries, and they’ve got their own version of Santa, but the most unusual of all traditions is found in Siberia.

It’s pretty simple: you cut a hole in the ice, take a Christmas Tree and take it with you to the bottom of the Baikal lake and plant it there.

Pretty simple, right? Sources say that only professional divers do so, but there surely are some amateurs in the haze of the holiday spirit.

Now, Finland does a bit of fortune telling for the New Year as the tradition is to drop molten tin into a container of water and then by the shape which the metal will take place your year will be predicted.

A heart or a ring will show that you have marriage ahead in the upcoming year, a ship means that you will travel and a pig looking piece will mean that you will have food, all pretty straightforward.

New Year Kiss

And the most widespread one around the world which we don’t even know why we do, we just plunge in if we’ve got the courage.

Now why does it happen? It’s pretty simple and straightforward: if you don’t you’ll have a year of loneliness ahead, as if that wasn’t clear enough already. But supposedly it had previously been done to ward off evil spirits (jealousy perhaps?)
