12 GRAPES
AT NEW YEAR'S EVE

Tonight, at the stroke of 12 midnight,
where ever you are,
whatever your time zone,
we begin a new year.

Some of us make resolutions,
promises of change for 2014.
But new year's resolutions
are a bit like babies . . .
"fun to make, but difficult to maintain."

There's a Spanish/Latino tradition
of eating 12 grapes at midnight
for good luck . . . one grape with
each strike of the bell at midnight.

12 grapes for good luck!.

A wonderful tradition.
(With no disappointments.)

Cheers,
and Happy New Year.
