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!
