It's been part of our family tradition to annually prepare the twelve different round fruits. We do believe that circles represents money. We do have some sticky foods like tikoy and biko that means family should stick together with sweet ties.Most especially Old people say that It will give you a prosperous time of your life that leads you to be successful. Some say it's just a belief but my stand is there's no harm in believing as long as you don't also lack hard work in fulfilling your dreams. How about you?What aresome preparations do you have now?

Our family doesn't have any traditions like this. My only preparations this year as I have done every other year is to make goals for myself. I believe this twelve rounds of fruit is a very good idea and as you say it can't hurt. I also believe we can attain prosperity by attracting it into our lives. Are you familiar with "The Secret?" It's an excellent book. It's like the post of mine where I have tied a green ribbon around the sink to remind me of the prosperity I want to come to my family this upcoming 2013 year. When I see the ribbon, I will be reminded of the things I want and the effort I have to put in to get me there. Anything that will help us to keep focused on our goals is something good and will work for us as long as we remember it will take hard work.

The book seems not familiar to me. Thanks for the given suggestions you've made. I will try to give time in reading that book in order for me to understand what you really say. Well since you've made mention about hard work, I'm looking forward towards this new beginning of the year!

"The Secret" is about thinking positive thoughts and manifesting good into our lives. You might even be able to watch a little about it on www.hulu.com. Just type in: The Secret. Another good book is "The Key" by Jack Canfield. If you get a chance, you might want to read that one as well. Excellent books, really
