In my house, we vacuum every stair, dust every corner, clean every inch, before New Year's to ensure a clean and organized household for the year. In Spain and some Latin American countries, when the clock strikes twelve people eat grapes, one with each ding of of a bell, twelve in all, stuffing their mouth like a chipmunk. In Ecuador, at midnight, people burn life-sized dolls filled with sawdust and cardboard to ashes in a tradition called Año viejo, symbolizing the burning away of the old year and the starting of a new one.
