All Dear Prozians,

What a naked truth god has shown us this year with a disaster that has happened in ASIAN sea at the end of this year.

For the coming year, I may hope that god will bless us with PEACE and prosperity.

Diverse New Year Celebrations

Spaniards rush to devour 12 grapes at the start of the new year,eating one with each chime of the clock.

Peruvians swallow the grapes whole while sitting underneath a table. They also wear yellow underwear.

Brazilians from Rio de Janeiro gather at beaches and plunge into the ocean at midnight bearing offerings of flowers, candles, candies, cigars and sugarcane alcohol to the ocean goddess Iemanja.

In the Fort de Chartres, Illinois, residents put on cornhusk costumes and go door-to-door to sing old French tunes.This is an an old French tradition.

Norwegians eat a traditional lutefisk meal: mashed green peas, bacon, mustard, boiled potatoes and lutefisk. Lukefisk is a a dried cod fish made with caustic soda.

Scottish children go from house to house collecting oatcakes.

People in Japan celebrate the New Year on January 1st. At midnight on December 31st, Buddhist temples ring their bells 108 times, symbolizing the 108 human sins in Buddhist belief. It is thought that the tolling of the bells can take away the sins of the past year.
