New Year´s customs and traditions

As we all know, remembering the New Year is a true celebration for the majority of Bolivia´s population. One important New Year´s Eve tradition is to wear red underwear, hoping that you will find a new love or eternal love. Some hoping that you will find a new love or eternal love. Some people prefer to wear yellow underwear, which is supposed to give them abundant money and health throughout the next year. Another significant custom is to eat twelve grapes representing each of the twelve months of the year, and as you eat each grape, you make a wish.Spending the night with your family signifies that all family members will live in harmony and unity. Eating pork will bring good fortune and eating chicken is entirely the opposite. A few second before midnight fireworks chase away all the evil spirits and bad thoughts from the house.
