Ah, so it's a Spanish (and perhaps Mexican) thing! I spent new year's eve on the roof of a youth hostel in Zacatecas, Mexico, and we gringos of many nationalities were surprised when our Mexican hosts handed us each 12 grapes and instructed us to eat one and make a wish with each chime of the church bells. None of us had heard of the custom, not even the Argentinean in the group.

It was very nice, although I must say eating grapes that fast is harder than it sounds! Making wishes, too. I think I just wished for the same thing 12 times.

Yeah, it's a one century old tradition that is still spreading worldwide (although in some places it's only a snob practice). Even Wikipedia has info about it.

I hope all your wishes render into reality this newborn year.

Btw, they also sell small cans of 12 grapes without skin and seeds so it's easier for children and old people to eat them.
