Fun Fact For The Week: New Year’s Eve is celebrated in different ways around the world. In Spain, people eat 12 grapes at midnight to bring in the new year. In Japan, they eat a bowl of buckwheat noodles called “toshikoshisoba” (year-crossing noodles). In Brazil, most people wear white on New Year’s Eve. In Greece, children leave their shoes by the fireside with the hope that St. Basil will fill their shoes with gifts; and in the Wolfe household we celebrated with lots of good friends, pizza and laughing in the New Year. Welcome 2011!!
