A thin line separates the year that was from the year that will be. In Portugal, we prepare for the magical moment when time crosses this line with 12 raisins in our hand. With each of the 12 clock strokes, we eat a raisin and make a silent wish.
This year we’ll save a raisin for you, dear reader, to wish that you’ll come experience the radiant beauty of Portugal.
Happy New Year!
