12 Grapes at Midnight and Other New Year's Traditions

By December 31, 2012

Twelve Grapes

On New Year's Eve in Mexico, families gather for a late night meal and at midnight they eat twelve grapes, one for each stroke of the clock, and as they eat each one, they make a wish for the coming year.

For Christmas 2011 I received a new suitcase and on December 31st I duly walked it around the block, as another Mexican New Year's Eve tradition dictates. The belief is that this will bring lots of travel in the new year. I was skeptical, but I have to admit it worked. 2012 was a great year of travel for me, and I can only hope 2013 will be just as full of fun, adventure and new travel experiences.

Here are just a few of the articles that resulted from my travels in 2012:

Wishing you a 2013 full of peace, joy and travel to Mexico. ¡Feliz año nuevo!
