Wanted to share some NYE traditions from around the globe. Eating beans on NYE is popular in many places: in the South of the US they eat black eyed peas, in Japan they eat black soybeans, and in Italy and Brazil they eat lentils. The idea is that it gives you prosperity for the new year. Ecuadorians burn pictures from the past year or realistic looking scarecrows to purge negativity. People in Turkey believe that if they do good deeds for others it will bring greater happiness for them in the new year. In Denmark they throw plates at their friends doors, the more broken plates you have the more friends you have. In Spain they eat 12 grapes (of luck) when the clock hits midnight. In Greece, they make special bread that is baked with a coin inside it.  The person who has the piece of bread with the coin receives good luck for a year.

When I was a kid I used to love watching the ball drop on TV in NYC with all the confetti! This year I'll be rocking an amazing cocktail dress with purple sequins of course. Whatever your traditions are I hope you sparkle louder on New Years!
