its new years eve so what will you be doing at midnight,where will you be,
31 Dec 06
I will be at home with two friends. At the stroke of midnight I will climb up on a chair and eat 12 grapes, one for each stroke of the clock. When alighting I will make sure I step down with my right foot first. This is a tradition in Portugal and I have done this for the 28 years that I have been residing here. The Portuguese believe that if you carry out this tradition you will be starting the new year out on the right foot and that you will have health and happiness throughout the coming year.
