YUMMY CALENDAR: 12 MENUS (PLUS HALLOWEEN + EASTER)




WIKI NOTE: A calendar is a system of organizing days for social, religious, commercial or administrative purposes. This is done by giving names to periods of time, typically days, weeks, months and years.  
Ancient documents and inscriptions, such as from Rome and China, include early forms of calendars. The modern calendar evolved alongside others such as almanacs, which collected religious, cultural, meteorological, astronomical and astrological information in a table format; practica, which gave astrological predictions for the year ahead; and diaries for personal and professional use. 
The term calendar is taken from calendae, the term for the first day of the month in the Roman calendar, related to the verb calare "to call out", referring to the "calling" of the new moon when it was first seen. Latin calendarium meant "account book, register" (as accounts were settled and debts were collected on the calends of each month).

FRUIT HEDGEHOG: PEAR GRAPES / VEGAN: NEW YEAR´S EVE, 12 GRAPES TRADITION




WIKI NOTE: In Spain, the actual countdown is primarily followed from the clock on top of the Casa de Correos building in Puerta del Sol Square in Madrid. It is traditional to eat twelve grapes, one on each chime of the clock. This tradition has its origins in 1909, when grape growers in Alicante thought of it as a way to cut down on the large production surplus they had had that year. The tradition consists of eating a grape with each bell strike at midnight of December 31st. According to the tradition, that leads to a year of prosperity. After the clock has finished striking twelve, people greet each other and toast with sparkling wine such as cava or champagne, or with cider.

Nowadays, the tradition is followed by almost every Spaniard (Spain, Latin American countries, as well as Hispanic communities in the United States, also the Philippines and Hay Flat, South Australia), and the twelve grapes have become synonymous with the New Year.
