Felice Anno Nuovo!

New Year's in Italy is a holiday filled with tradition and superstition, including:

  • Throwing pots, pans and clothes out of the window to let go of the past move toward the future.
  • Eating a New Year's Eve meal that symbolizes abundance. Many dishes feature lentils (which symbolize wealth) and raisins (for good luck).
  • Wearing red underwear for good luck.
  • Firing a Christmas log to turn away evil spirits.
