9 muses musing - CELEBRATE

Happy New Year's Eve!

Around the world there will be wonderful celebrations tonight for welcoming the New Year. In Brazil, people go to the beaches to take a midnight dip in the water, offer flowers and a wish to the goddess Lemanja. The English wait for the first person to enter their homes to tell them how next year's luck will be.  In Greece, children leave their shoes out to be filled with gifts. Italians hang mistletoe over the front door to bring them good luck. In Spain and Latin countries, some people eat 12 grapes at midnight, as a bell is rung 12 times with the hopes of happiness and luck for the next 12 months.

What will you be doing today to celebrate the end of 2010?  Does your family have certain traditions? Will you be out playing in the snow, spending the evening on the town, partying until midnight, or snuggling at home with your family watching the New Year's Eve ball drop?

I look forward to seeing your submissions for the prompt: CELEBRATE.

Have a happy and safe evening everyone! I look forward to musing with you in 2011.
