New Year’s Traditions

December 31, 2014 | Community

Help With Your Resolutions

One tradition as common as making a New Year’s Resolution is breaking one. In fact, a University of Bristol study proved that almost 90% of New Year’s resolutions fail. The promise made for self-improvement and life-altering changes can be a lofty goal, especially without the right support behind you. Thankfully, the team at LeBauer Behavioral Medicine can help you turn your New Year’s Resolution into a successful tradition.

Consider a Tradition

If you’re not following the tradition of making a resolution, here are some other traditions from around the world we have found. While New Year’s Eve parties followed with fireworks and singing, “Auld Lang Syne” at the stroke of midnight may be the most familiar scene, there are other food and festivities symbolic to recognizing a change from one year to the next that have held meaning throughout history:

❖     Toasting as the ball drops in New York is recognized around the world

❖     Hiding an almond in rice pudding – whoever finds it will have 12 months of good fortune

❖     Ring-shaped cakes and pastries as a sign of a year coming full circle in Netherlands, Mexico, Greece and elsewhere

❖     Pork represents prosperity in some cultures in Cuba, Austria, Hungary, and Portugal

❖     Legumes such as lentils in Italy and black-eyed peas in the U.S. as a symbol of coins and a wish for future financial success

❖     Eating a dozen grapes in Spain and Spanish speaking countries, representing hope for the new year

Throughout history, any one of these traditions spoke to a hope for the New Year, as noted by history.com, and could make a great addition to your usual festivities.

How to Get Started

Making a resolution and recognizing traditions can be difficult.  If you would like a place to start with your resolutions, talk to one of the LeBauer Behavioral Medicine providers, and click here to learn how to make an appointment today.
