Traditions.....NEW and OLD -

Over the next several days I will be sharing some Crockett traditions.  Some are old and some are new but all are worth sharing =)

Today's is actually new -

Mexicans celebrate by eating 12 grapes, one for each of the 12 clock chimes at midnight, making a wish with each one. The grapes also represent the 12 months of the new year, and each wish is to ensure a lucky month. However, a sour grape will represent a particularly unlucky month and a wish unfulfilled.  Of course some champagne helps wash the grapes down given you only have a certain amount of time to eat all 12 (wink, wink)

So Ronnie and I did this.  And I am happy to say that ALL 12 were sweet.  Fingers crossed for my 12 wishes to come true January through December. ha!

We'll see if this becomes an annual tradition based on the outcome LOL.
