Things Chileans Do...

... at midnight on New Year's Eve:

1. Run around the block with two packed suitcases if they want to go on a trip that year.

2. Eat 12 grapes to guarantee 12 lucky months.

3. Wear yellow underwear to have luck in love.

4. Create life sized dummies out of old clothes and newspaper and burn them to get rid of the bad vibes from last year and create good vibes for the new year.

5. Hug and kiss everyone in the neighborhood, wishing them a great year.
