Happy New Year

Posted by daveb on January 8th, 2008

Scoff twelve grapes on New Year’s EveHappy New Year to you; hope you had a good one.

A quiet New Year’s Eve celebration for us this time: we sat on the beach and watched the various fireworks displays going off around the Mar Menor lagoon. In Spain, it’s customary to eat twelve grapes in quick succession in the last few moments of the year. I only managed two in time as I had assumed that the grapes would be seedless (which they were not). Claire put in a good showing with nine in her mouth at once, which more-or-less doubled the size of her head!
