The one about carrying a suitcase around the house.

Another New Year’s tradition that bewilder me still to this day is when ticans run around their houses TWICE with a suitcase or a backpack. This one supposedly ensures one’s capacity to travel far in the coming year.

The one about eating grapes for the New Year.

There’s a lot of traditions observed by native ticans during New Year’s Eve. Another practice is the consumption of twelve grapes at midnight.

The one about wearing red undies for the New Year.

I don’t know about you but I’m wearing two kinds of jockey shorts as I’m writing this. You never know.

Happy 2013, Folks!

From everyone here in BobbyRica, we wish everyone an adventurous but fulfilling New Year.
