PERPETUATING RITUALS

Milk Magazine (English) - - RITES -

We drink cham­pagne be­fore, through­out and af­ter din­ner, es­pe­cially on New Year’s Eve when mak­ing good res­o­lu­tions, while in Italy and Por­tugual, peo­ple throw out old ob­jects and crock­ery to sym­bol­ise the end of the year.

The fes­tive pe­riod pro­vides an oc­ca­sion to clean and pu­rify the house as in South Amer­ica, where it is tra­di­tional to burn a rag doll and leave a broom in front of one’s door.
