The New Year is an opportunity to improve various professional and personal aspects, and the one that we are about to begin is even more special since it is about kick off of a new decade.
In different parts of the world, rituals are usually practiced to close the cycle that ends with a flourish and augur good fortune for the next one in love, work, money, health, etc. In Mexico we are not the exception, our country is synonymous with celebration and we take any occasion as a reason to celebrate, to the extent that the Latin American Directory of Heritage Resources places the Mexican Republic on its map as the country with the highest number of rituals and celebrations in Latin America . 
For this reason, we leave you some of the most popular practices that Mexicans usually do on December 31:
- Grapes: eat 12 fruits, one per month and chime, while making a wish.
- Underwear: Depending on what you want to attract is the color to use, red for love or yellow for money.
- Brand new clothes: If you wear something new that day, you will wear new clothes all year long. But remember to donate your used clothing to charitable causes.
- Suitcases: Taking a walk outside your home with her will help you visit destinations in the coming months; preferably make a backpack and do ecotourism in a sustainable way!
- Deep cleaning: It is one of the few that does not depend on luck, but brings tangible and immediate results. Debugging the spaces helps to get rid of what is no longer useful, to receive the new. Applies to everything, office, home, bedroom, bathroom, closet, bags, you can even perform digital cleaning. Remember to separate the waste in containers destined for each material such as glass, plastic and cardboard; electronics like phones They have special collection centers.
- Sweep: It goes hand in hand with the previous one but on a more spiritual level, it also helps to remove negativity and bad vibes from the house.
- Throw salt: Doing it above the shoulders purifies your energy.

- Drop a glass of water: Help not shed tears the following year (to avoid wasting liquid, however minimal, Fundación Helvex recommends you pour it into a plant)
