New Year’s Eve 12 Round Fruits

It is a Filipino tradition on New Year’s Eve to have 12 circular fruits at the table to usher in the new year. The round shape is supposed to symbolize prosperity and fortune. 1 fruit for each month of the year. I actually can’t remember the last time I participated in this tradition. I did a couple of times but I can’t remember what years. Sine 2020 has been how it is, I figured it couldn’t hurt to do it. I mean. we’d be eating fruits for the first week of 2021 and there’s nothing wrong with that.

I have one of each: watermelon, orange, apple, pear, lemon, and pomegranate.


Grapes, kiwi, papaya, lime, and mango.

Here’s to hoping and wishing 2021 is much better than 2020. I can by cynical as the next cynical person but, there is that 5% of me that is always hopeful for positive things. HERE IT GOES!!!
