Grapes at Midnight Tradition
The most popular story dates back to the early 1900s when a bumper harvest of white grapes led to producers sharing them out to one and all, and so began the tradition of popping grapes on New Year's Eve. Of course these days you can buy them prepacked, 12 to a tin or tub all ready for the countdown.
So why not give it a go? Large white seedless grapes and preferably a large mouth make for a quieter New Year's Eve as everyone is busy chewing, swallowing and popping. You have a few days to get in some practice before 31st December.
Happy New Year.
