A New Year’s Eve Toast...with Grapes!

Southern Living (USA) - - Beauty & Style -

THE TRA­DI­TION: “Right be­fore mid­night, my mom would gather us all to­gether, and we’d pray for a bless­ing for the New Year. Af­ter that, we’d do the countdown and eat 12 grapes as fast as we could,” Ekanger says with a laugh. “It’s an old su­per­sti­tion for bring­ing good luck the next year!” These days, she skips the grapes but still rings in the New Year sur­rounded by close friends.

HER LOOK: Ekanger’s day dress moves eas­ily into cock­tail hour (and all the way un­til mid­night!) when ac­ces­sorized with clas­sic, berry-hued pumps and glitzy baubles.
