One of the New Year rituals we follow at home is preparing fruits. According to my grandparents, the fruits should be round and sweet. Round fruits symbolize wealth/money and sweet connotes close and loving relationship with family. I also included pineapple as according to friends, the numerous “eyes”, the pineapple symbolizes an eye for successful career and opportunities.
Gold and choco coins to attract wealth
Colorful sweets for a harmonious and lasting relationship
Red and round for hope and infinity
Food for the New Year is all about the color red and round shapes, I prepared sweet, savory and reddish meals for NYE dinner:

Wishing everyone an abundant 2013!
