I cannot think of a better way to start this new year than keeping up with my Spanish traditions next to my boyfriend, family and friends.
At midnight we watched live from Spanish television Las Doce Campanadas (the 12 lucky bell chimes) to welcome the new year.
This tradition consists in eating 12 grapes at the sound of each bell chime that is marked by the clock in Puerta del Sol in Madrid and making a wish along with each grape, one for each month of the new year.

Afterwards it was my turn to join in the fun Munich tradition of lighting up fireworks in the street!
