Overview of festivals and celebrations in Mexico
Mexicans start celebrating New Year on December 31 and continue on January 1. On the morning of December 31, locals clean their homes and sweep dirt out of the door, symbolizing a farewell to all the bad things that happened in the past year. Lentils are hung on the door to attract wealth. With the evening approaching, celebrants turn on the lights in each room of their houses, which symbolizes light beginnings of the coming year. Then all sit down at a table with lit candles put among a variety of dishes. When the clock strikes, it is customary to eat one grape with every stroke. People hoping for a promotion at work should stand on a chair. To attract money, many people put coins in their shoes or lottery tickets in their wallets.
