Happy New Year, Everyone!!!
Spent New Year's Eve in Mexico with some friends.
After cleaning my space, I dumped the mop water out the front door to clean out the old new year.
For the dinner, I wore white underwear for good health and brought a lentil salad for prosperity (lentils look like tiny coins).
We lit blue, red, yellow, green, orange and white candles for peace, passion, abundance, health, intelligence and clarity.
We made a toast to the New Year and to our good health with sparkling grape juice and said prayers for the meal and the New Year.
After dinner, we walked to the Remate and, a minute before midnight, we ate 12 grapes, each one representing a wish for the New Year as the Christmas Tree flashed its lights and at midnight spelled out Feliz Año Nueveo 2017!!!!
Firecrackers burst all around. Fireworks could be seen in the distance. We blew our whistles, and tossed streamers and confetti!!!
The romantic in me wanted to toss a coin in the Remate Fountain and make a wish, like a scene from the American movie Three Coins in a Fountain set in Italy. But, after tossing a coin in and making a wish, I thought I should get the coin back, so it wouldn't clog the fountain's machinery.
