The number 13 is often associated with bad luck, so if you are superstitious you may fear ringing in 2013. However instead of fearing it, why not do something different to make this the best year ever?
Many Latinos already have old traditions we believe help us usher in prosperity and luck for the New Year. Some of us thoroughly sweep out our homes and replace the old broom with a new one for the start of the year. Some of us have buckets filled with water that we throw out our windows and doors at the stroke of midnight. Many of us eat 12 grapes at midnight while others buy new underwear depending on what they want in the New Year. For example red underwear is worn for love and yellow is worn for luck.
This year why not add some new traditions to your old ones by having a Prosperity themed New Year’s Eve party? Creating a Prosperity themed party is easy to do and does not have to cost much. I guarantee that your guest will enjoy it. Here are some simple tips to make your Prosperity themed party a big hit!
Ask each guest to write down a saying or thought of prosperity and place in a ‘prosperity’ jar. Decorate the jar with red ribbons or glitter and read the sayings at midnight.
Now you know how-to through a Prosperity themed New Year's Eve party! We at Casa Latina wish you and your family all the best life has to offer in the coming year.
