Cultural Observation

In the countdown to midnight on New Year's Eve, supposedly the people here eat twelve grapes in the last twelve seconds of the year and make wishes in the process. I'm not sure how the tradition got started, but our comedor talked about the tradition when she gave us a bag of grapes with an apple on Christmas. (I guess they also eat grapes at midnight on Christmas Eve, but not in the last twelve seconds like on New Year's Eve).
