Spanish New Year's typically consists of a costume party. Then when the clock strikes midnight, people eat 12 grapes, one for each stroke of the clock. It's hard to chew and swallow them fast enough!

You would think that these are peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but no. (At first, when I saw them, I thought, "Wow, PBJ is so rare here, it's special enough to serve for New Year's Eve dinner." But then I looked a little closer...
There! See it? Not Peanut butter and jelly--Smoked salmon and jelly! YUMmmmm. (Actually, this will go down as one of the weirdest things I have ever eaten.)
Amazingly tender meat with some kind of white sauce.
My grapes! I succeeded in eating them all, too! (But I de-seeded them first with my pocketknife.)
