"New Year's Eve at Plaza del Sol" Local Festivities Tip by Carmela71

Local Festivities, Madrid: 26 reviews and 26 photos

The 31st of December of each year... all spanish people is pending of this clock.....

We have the tradition to eat one grape with each of the 12 clock?s strokes, if you are able to finish the twelve grapes before the last stroke you will have good luck in the following months.

Mos of the people meet in this square for the moment... but by own experience, if you really want this to happend... do not go to a busy square wher eyou can not here the clock strokes lol ...

It has happened to me twice, on the 2000 here in plaza del sol, and this year on Marbella, at plaza de los Naranjos, where the discjokey was drunk and did not advice the rest of the people lol

But I have to admit something .... this year I know my wish is going to be true.. as there are lots of chances that it will happend....

Keep fingers crosseddddddd!!!

UPDATES It became true ......
