Many New Year’s traditions around the world involve food or noises. But many are also related to your actions on New Year’s Eve or Day.
– Kissing someone you love at midnight is thought to continue that sentiment for the year ahead.
– Stock up on groceries before midnight. Beginning the new year with empty cupboards is considered bad luck, signaling poverty and hardship.
– Keeping cash in your wallet promotes a financially successful year. Don’t set a precedent for the year by loaning money or having unpaid debts.
– Don’t sweep or wash away luck by cleaning or doing laundry New Year’s Day.
