What Do Spanish Eat on New Years Eve?

Answer

The people of Spain like to eat fruits on New Year's Eve, specifically grapes. At midnight on New Year's Day, the Spanish people eat grapes as they believe this will give them good luck for the New Year. It is said that in 1909, there was once a large grape harvest in the country before New Year's, and the King at that time gave grapes to all the citizens to help get rid of the surplus. The tradition has been observed ever since.
