Those ringing in la Vispera de Año Nuevo, or New Year's Eve, in Spain consume 12 grapes at midnight, as each grape signifies each stroke of the clock. The tradition harks back to 1909, when winemakers in the Alicante region began the tradition. Beware if you get a sour grape: this signifies a tough month in the year ahead.
