Every year on New Year's Eve at midnight, the Spanish and the Portuguese eat twelve grapes in order to secure twelve happy months in the coming year. In Greece, New Year's Day is also the day of St. Basil and a cake dedicated to him is baked on that day. A silver or gold coin is put in it and whoever finds the coin in their piece of cake will be especially lucky during the coming year. In Ecuador they craft and then set on fire a scarecrow-looking dummy symbolizing the old year being forgotten and the new one beginning. While most people would be angered to find a pile of broken dishes at their door steps, in Denmark this is a sign that you have many friends. People save the old dishes and throw them at the homes of their friends on the last day of the year.
