Overview of festivals and celebrations in Puerto Rico
Spending winter holidays in Puerto Rico, one should be especially careful in crowded places. Many Puerto Ricans carry guns, and some can suddenly start shooting in the air during festivities. During the New Year celebration, Puerto Ricans often pour full buckets of water from their windows to scare away evil spirits, so it's better to stay away from windows if you're walking on the street. Another interesting tradition is sprinkling thresholds and porches with sugar to attract good luck. When the clock strikes for the last 12 seconds, one needs to eat 12 grapes, then the wealth will not be long in coming in the new year.
