Everyone wants to start the year off on the right foot! Here are a few superstitions that can help you have a great start to 2017!

Eat 12 Grapes at Midnight - Grapes used to be considered a lucky food, so eat 12 at midnight, one for every month in the new year!

Light off fireworks and noise makers - The loud noises are meant to scare off evil spirits! Hanging a lemon in the door way has the same effect.

Lay Low - Stay at home and DON'T do housework! Washing laundry and dishes was once thought to "wash away" good luck and could bring on the death of a family member. No one wants that!

If you do go out, wear new clothes! - Doing this will increase the likelihood of you getting more new clothes in the new year!

Don't Cry! - Crying on New Year's Eve or Day could bring on unhappiness for the whole year! It's best not to risk it.

Open the Doors - Open up your doors when the clock strikes midnight to let all the bad from the past year out! I know the weather isn't ideal for this in Minnesota, but just do it for a second and see if it improves the coming year!

And of Course, Kiss Someone at Midnight! - A new years eve kiss is a symbol that your love and affection will last all year! Last year my kiss was on the cheek from my best friend, gotta say that the superstition was true!
