Grape expectations: Christmas in Spain | CourseIndex
A particularly picturesque Spanish Christmas tradition is that of the Olentzero, a coal vendor who leaves gifts for good children and coal for bad ones. Spaniards also eat twelve grapes on New year’s Eve, one for each chime of the clock at midnight. Most people end up looking like hamsters with their cheeks stuffed with grapes, and paramedics are on national standby in case anyone chokes.
