Try the local customs

For Americans, the stroke of midnight often includes a kiss and a champagne toast. In Mexico, it’s customary to consume 12 grapes – one for each chime of the clock. “Las doce uvas de la suerte” brings luck in the New Year.

While walking along the streets, be mindful of windows overhead. It’s also considered good luck to toss out a bucket of water at midnight, which signifies bidding farewell to the old year. And don’t be surprised if you’re invited to walk a circle around an empty suitcase. Another way to invite good travels in the New Year is to walk around the block while carrying an empty suitcase. Visitors can rest assured that fireworks are just as traditional in Mexico as they are in America; midnight fireworks invite good luck and frighten away evil spirits.
