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.
