2013 was welcomed on December the 31st. This year my family and I were invited to a friend’s house. They are a family of five and a dog. When I arrived I was stunned to see their apartment, it was so modern with big windows but still had their culture as a bonus. After the tour more people came, it was actually a party! We started to settle down and after that It felt like forever as I was waiting for the clock to stroke at lest 11:00pm. This might be a weird tradition and it involves grapes, each person gets five grapes and every time the clock strokes and adds a minute we eat a grape. It is actually pretty fun! Another tradition gives you good luck for the next year; we all go out and walk around the block with luggage bags and of course wearing jackets and warm clothes to look like we are going on a trip. This was the best new years ever!
