I am not very familiar with traditions in different countries, but here in Bulgaria we believe that New Year's Eve is the perfect time for wishes. That is why we bake a special pastry called banitsa and put different fortunes inside, plus a 1 lev coin (app 50 cent), which symbolizes wealth. At exactly 00.00h, when the new year arrives, everybody picks a slice and reads his own fortune for the year. I was lucky enough to pick a slice with both the coin and a fortune, yay! My fortune was just the one I wanted - "adventures in another country". Let's all hope new year fortunes do come true, haha!

I want to wish you all a very happy, successful, beautiful, adventurous and peaceful year full of love and wisdom!

Happy New Year!


  1. And to you! What a sweet way to ring in the new year (in NZ we just tend to drink lots of bubbly, he!). And thanks for your comment on my post - I really needed a reminder not to give up hope, so thank you :)

  2. I sincerely hope you get what the fortune says! That photo is so shiny and brilliant. I love it! Happy New Year! I've never heard of banitsa before reading your post, but now I want some! Can you eat it even if it's not New Year's Eve anymore? :)
