Do you kiss at midnight to fend off a year of loneliness?
Do you eat a special food to bring you luck? My grandmother insists that we come eat sauerkraut every January 1st for good luck. I hate sauerkraut which may be why I have such bad luck.
Do you wear brand new clothes on January 1st to ensure a full closet?
Do you scare the evil spirits away at midnight with noise makers?
Do you check the direction of the wind? I myself am hoping for a south wind for some money and happiness. A north wind means a year full of bad weather. Wind from the East expect a year of bad luck. A wind from the west could mean a death of someone important to you.
How about washing in silver? I only know of one family that does this and that’s right it’s my grandparents. A bowl fool of cold water with silver dollars and coins await us January 1st. If you don’t wash it then you hear all year long as to why you are stricken with bad luck.
What are your family traditions?
