For Christmas my family reunited together at our house since my mom makes the most delicious food ever. We enjoyed tamales rojos (red) and de dulce ( the raisin sweet flavor), ham and menudo. I received what i wanted and more. For new years my mother had a new good luck routine. We had to write down our wishes in a paper fold it and put it inside a balloon. When the time almost hit 12 we blew up our balloons and went outside to release them onto the sky. What my mother forgot was that they did not have helium so they did not float away lol but it was fun throwing them around and getting all scared when they popped. Then my mother got the lenteja (lentils) and threw it from the entrance of the apartment towards inside the house. The reason for that was to bring in the money to the house and to improve our financial status. We ate our 12 grapes and made our wishes on them. Then my mother burned the old broom once she sweeped the floor. That is to get rid of all the bad stuff of this past year and throw it out of the door and in with the new. I can not forget to mention our other traditions and that is the red and yellow underwear! This is to bring in the love and money into our lives.
My new years resolution is to get fit and have a more positive attitude towards everything that i do and will do. To find a job and be able to help out more around the house and earn enough to go out of town by the time my birthday comes around. Oh be more nicer or understand my brother more since we seem to crash from time to time.
