      Vasilopita- On New Year's Day families cut the vasilopita to bless the house and bring good luck for the new year, usually done at the midnight of New Year's Eve. A coin is hidden in the bread, at midnight the sign of the cross is etched with a knife across the cake. A piece of cake is sliced for each member of the family and any visitors present at the time, by order of age from eldest to youngest. Sometimes a pre-arranged gift is given to the coin recipient.

      Vasilopita - I think I'll skip the coin in the cloth step but otherwise sounds yummy!
