Media Noche

Media Noche

Media Noche or midnight meal is a feast that is also supposed to symbolize hopes for a prosperous New Year. People see these as the traditional means to greet the New Year.
Folk beliefs also include encouraging children to jump at the stroke of midnight so that they would grow up tall, displaying circular fruit and wearing clothes with dots and other circular designs to symbolize money, eating twelve grapes at 12 midnight for good luck in the twelve months of the year, and opening windows and doors during the first day of the New Year to let in the good luck.

For the first time my mother made us Chicken Fettucini Carbonara for our media noche instead of the usual spaghetti that she always cook every time we celebrate our bday, Christmas or New Year's Eve :)

Displaying fruits for good luck... :)

Fireworks to drive away bad spirits... ^_^

Celebrating New Year with my family...
lacking one - my sister :(... she's in Manila for her NCLEX review...
