Happy New Year 2020- Feliz año Nuevo 2020

New Year 2020 is almost upon us. How time does seem to fly when you look back at the year that has passed. Has it been a good year? What were the high points or the lows?

It is funny but people do tend to repeat themselves about this time of the year. “It doesn’t seem like two minutes since…” or “This year, we really must…” I bet you do the same yourself, no?

Nerja has been as popular this year as it was the year before. And, we are in no doubt that Nerja will be buzzing in 2020. We can’t wait.

Spanish New Year Traditions

There are many traditions attributed to New Year all over the world. In Scotland, for instance, the “First Footing” is a tradition celebrated on Hogmanay, a Scottish New Year’s celebration. It is supposed to bring luck and prosperity to the household for the new year. It is a ritual involving the first person to step into a household from the outside in a new year.

Spain has its own traditions, some of them are as follows:

  • 12 Lucky Grapes. It’s the seeds that get ya! …
  • Lottery Luck. An El Gordo lottery ticket from Alvy via Flickr CC. …
  • Lentil Soup for Lunch. Rich and totally satisfying. …
  • Cupid’s Red Underthings. Shopping for plenty of red at this time of year. …
  • Gold and a Glass of Cava. …
  • Starting the Year on the Right Foot. …
  • Cookies and a Coin.

For most of us, New Year’s Eve will be spent with our families and friends and, at the stroke of midnight, we will be swallowing grapes at every stroke of the midnight bell that rings in the New Year 2020.

From everyone at Nerja Beach Holidays, we wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year 2020. We also hope to see you in one of the many great self-catering villas, townhouses and apartments in Nerja on the beautiful Costa del Sol.

Feliz Año Nuevo 2020!
