Excited For Tomorrow!

It's gonna be the last day of the year 2010 tomorrow and we are all excited since it would be another time to light our lucis which is the only one allowed on our home to light up when the clock starts to wind down to welcome the New Year. We were never a fan of firecrackers because we have children to protect so the blowing of horn or torotot in Filipino, is the only way to welcome 2011 as well as lighting of lucis.

There are some superstitions that some Filipinos follow in order to become lucky on the coming year all of them pertaining to a coin or money which means to have more money in the coming year. Some of them are wearing polkadots, the polkadots being the shape of a coin, preparing fruits with a round shape on one's home, for children, jumping up and down to become taller and a lot more. I must admit that when I was younger, I tend to do some of this stuff believing my wishes would come true. A lot of Filipinos still do some of this superstitions and I cannot blame them since it has become sort of a tradition here.

I just hope, there would be less accidents this year since we all know how dangerous firecrackers are when not handled carefully. So let's all start welcoming 2011 with a bang but all in a safe manner!
