Latin American New Year's Grape Tradition

POPSUGAR / paid for by / Buick

The holidays are a time for gathering and celebrating with loved ones. We partnered with Buick for this second post of a four-part series that celebrates the authentic traditions that define the spirited season.

A very popular tradition in Latin households is the eating of grapes on New Year's Eve. The custom involves eating 12 grapes in one minute as soon as the clock strikes midnight. The grapes represent the 12 months of the year and eating them all in one minute is believed to bring you good luck for the next 365 days to come! Many people also make a wish each time they eat a grape or think of something they hope to accomplish in the New Year. This tradition is done in a social setting with family and friends, and it's a time when everyone can ask for good fortune for themselves and others. If you are hosting New Year's Eve this year, here's how you can share this special tradition with your loved ones in the most stylish way possible.
