Lucky Traditions for New Year’s Eve

by Maryann Pisano on December 26, 2014


It’s no secret that Italians love traditions and food.  Let’s eat our way to good luck in 2015– the Italian way!


Lentils are essential to Italians on New Year’s Eve.  They are supposed to bring good luck for those who eat them.  Being oval-shaped, lentils are supposed to resemble gold coins, thus representing money for the upcoming year.  The more you eat, the more money you will have for the next year!   


Dried fruits and grapes are eaten by Italians on New Year’s Eve.  Having grapes ensures that those eating will be wise and frugal for the upcoming year.  You must have a lot of willpower to not eat the grapes until New Year’s Eve due to the grape harvest.  By doing this, the person with such willpower will be wise and frugal or the upcoming year.


  • Wearing red undergarments is supposed to mean good fortune, fertility, and love!  To take full effect, these undergarments must be thrown out the window the next day!
  • Throwing away old personal items must tossed out the window.  So, if you don’t want it for 2015, throw it out!
