New Years Tradition from Spain – Twelve Grapes As Midnight Strikes?


HE SAYS: LA Times reports that Paul Gasol, Lakers Number 16 says there is a Spanish tradition of eating 12 grapes as midnight strikes.

SHE says: He took this awesome photo at Melville Winery, Lompoc, CA

“It brings you luck.”  That’s a lot better than black-eyed-peas.

SHE SAYS: So if I kiss you as you’re eating the grapes, are those my grapes or yours?

HE SAYS: How the tradition works is you put one grape in your mouth for each strike of the clock at midnight. So no, you can’t eat my grapes.  That would be like drinking my milkshake.  Don’t do that. You will have your own grapes.
