We really don't have any in my family other than our traditional southern New Year's meal. At dinner over at a friend's house tonight though we were talking about this and I mentioned the grape one which I'd heard before, there's also something about standing an egg on it's end?? Not really sure what it was but one of my girlfriends does that. The guys I was having dinner with told me that their mothers put pennies on the window cills to bring prosperity in the new year. I hadn't heard that one before myself but found it interesting.
