while you're toasting to the New Year, let kids celebrate with a Spanish custom: eating 12 grapes at midnight for good luck all year long. fill a champagne flute for every child older than 3 with a dozen grapes; they can eat one for every chime as the clock strikes midnight.
good luck... adults too - it's not as easy as it looks, i've tried before.
Ha Ha! Didn't know you had to eat all the grapes in only a minute. I guess you better get the small ones.
