Ring in the New Year With These 7 Mexican Traditions

Image
In a few days you will be proclaiming "Happy New Year," or in Spanish, "Feliz Año Nuevo" to your friends and family. We expect 2019 to be a wonderful time, February in particular. (That's when your favorite Mexican restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks will be back from our winter break!) 

Here in the United States, most of you will be ringing in the new year with champagne toasts, feasts, parties, and watching the ball drop on TV in Times Square. In Mexico, they have a few of their own traditions and Mexicali Blues has some of those to share with you today.   



A Golden Midnight Toast
People in Mexico share a toast of something sparkling at midnight just like we do. To add a bit of luck to their toast, they drop a gold ring into the glass before they drink it. This is supposed to help bring good fortune your way in the coming year. (Just don't swallow the ring! That would be a horrible way to start a year.)

Choose Your Underwear Wisely
Many people put a lot of t…
