NEW YEAR'S EVE
Here's what we need
to celebrate New Year's Eve . . .
1. Twelve grapes.
2. One bottle French champagne.
(With one in reserve, if necessary.)
3. Pad of paper.
(To write down 2016 resolutions.)
There's a hispanic/latino tradition
of eating 12 grapes at midnight
for good luck in 2016.
1 grape at each strike of the bell at midnight.
(12 grapes for good luck)
The champagne, so we can toast the new year,
hopefully with someone special.
And the pad of paper, so we can write down
our resolutions for the new year,
promises of change for 2016.
resolutions are a bit like babies . . .
"fun to make, but difficult to maintain."
HAPPY NEW YEAR ! !
