Eating 12 grapes on the strike of midnight


I always wondered what this was all about here on Lanzarote!

The tradition consists of eating a grape with each bell strike at midnight of December 31. According to the tradition, that leads to a year of prosperity. ... The twelve grapes are linked to the Puerta del Sol tower clock, where this tradition started and from where the change of year is always broadcast.
