A Fun New Year's Eve Tradition ~ According to Martha Stewart, it's a Spanish tradition to quickly eat a dozen grapes at midnight. The fruit being a predictor of the year ahead: Each sweet grape representing a good month. So thread grapes onto skewers and serve each in a drink right before the countdown. This is great because children and non-drinkers can also participate. Just put the skewer in Sparkling Apple Cider or whatever beverage you are serving for the toast.
