Hey there, 2021!
The last night of the year means the end of a stage and also a new beginning, and in Spain it’s always celebrated with joy and great enthusiasm around the world.
A kiss for your partner, emotion, laughter and also some tears. December 31st is a day we love and for which we always have high expectations. In Spain there are several traditions that are typical of the country and that you would like to know to prepare your night.
Like in the rest of the world, New Year’s Eve is the perfect occasion to wear a dress covered by sequins or the prettiest tie in the drawer. This is your chance to put on those heels and blow it all away, that’s tonight’s dress code.
An exceptional dinner with family, friends, neighbors or whoever you prefer, but dinner (a nice one) is mandatory, and the party can’t be missing either.
Nearing midnight it is tradition to discuss what will be the TV channel in which we’ll see the countdown. Some have their trusted channel and some will argue until they come to an agreement. The cotillions are opened, you get excited with the coloured confetti and paper hats and you sit down with 12 grapes ready to eat.
The 12 grapes are a beautiful tradition because they always end in laughter. Eating 12 grapes in 12 seconds may seem like an easy task, but for some reason it is difficult to achieve without choking on the fit of laughter and excitement that you’re having. There is no better way to end the year than laughing with your loved ones!
We invite you to say goodbye to this year with gratitude and to welcome 2021, which we look forward to. We’ll surely enjoy Sitges together next summer! Happy New Year everyone!
