Description

Celebrate the new year with a tradition as old as the wind, at the Puerta del Sol in Madrid. Join the hundreds of thousands of revellers bringing in the Nochevieja in true Spanish style, as the clock on the Casa de Correos tolls to mark the new year. Of course, any New Year's Eve in the Puerta del Sol would not be complete without partaking in the bizarre Spanish ritual of grape eating! All those in the square at midnight eat 12 grapes in time with the Casa de Correos' 12 strokes of midnight. This is not as easy as it sounds, and you are sure to bring in the new year in fits of giggling as you try to squeeze those 12 juicy fruits into your mouth in a mere 12 pre-midnight seconds.
