Hitty Ollie and Hitty Linda want to share with you the way we celebrate New Year’s Eve in Spain:

Spanish New Year

We wait until dusk

Wearing silly hats

Wearing a hat

and maybe even a mask

and a mask

and when is really dark

we put twelve grapes apart

we wait and we wait


then at midnight

eating the grapes

we eat a a grape at each’s clock chime

at first is easy to eat then on time

but not anymore when you ate nine

and this way we start the New Year just fine!

Happy new year
