It’s quite funny how time flies so fast. I can still remember how we have welcomed New Year 2016 and now, we’re about to welcome 2017. Anyhow, I am sure that New Year traditions will never be left behind.
Sure that each of us has been practicing the traditions every New Year. And I am sure as well that we are all guilty of it. Many traditions have been passed from generations to generations and even though without further details if it has been proven effective, we still do it. As the saying goe “wala naman’g mawawala kung susubukan, ‘di ba,” which is maybe why we still do it.
So to make things clear for everyone particularly for the new grownups, here are the New Year traditions that many of us have been practicing and I am sure that you are familiar with it as well.
It says that wearing any cloth that has polka dots design will give you a fortune in the coming year. That means welcoming the New Year with all those polka dots design will lead you to prosperity.
Completing the 13 round fruits
Ha! You sure always see to it of completing the 13 round fruits despite the struggle. Well, lucky the ones who complete it as what people say.
Make noise when the clock strikes to 12AM which means Happy New Year!
By doing so, you avoid evil spirits and bad luck. As to why fireworks and firecrackers are lit every New Year. Legit? Well, so far, it has been practiced for long years already.
They said that if you welcome New Year with a jump, you get taller than your usual height. Well, ask me how many times I did that? Hahaha
Welcome New Year in the place you’d like to spend your whole year to
I am not sure if this is common to you but I have heard this from my friends and relatives. If you like to spend your whole year for that certain place and with the certain people, then you get to welcome New Year in the exact place with the exact people.
Whether these traditions are for real or not, effective or proven not, what matters most is that we are all happy in welcoming the year and that, we should be thankful for every blessing we get to receive. How about you? What are your New Year traditions that until now, you still observe?
