The English look to the “first-footer,” or the first person to step foot into their house, to tell them how next year’s luck will be.

New Year’s Day marks the Festival of Saint Basil in Greece, where children leave their shoes out to be filled with gifts. St. Basil’s bread is baked with small trinkets inside, bringing luck to those who find them. Italians hang mistletoe over the front door to bring good luck. Women in Mexico wear red underwear if they wish to marry in the New Year, and pink is worn by pregnant women to bring luck to the baby. Those hoping to travel, carry an empty suitcase around the block. Many people in Spain and Latin countries eat 12 grapes at midnight, as a bell is rung 12 times. Each grape represents a month of the year. By eating them at midnight one hopes to have happiness and luck for the next 12 months.
In Bulgaria, the holiday celebrations start with Christmas and end with Epiphany, January 6, and the whole fortnight is dedicated to making wishes, giving blessings and engaging in soothsaying about luck and prosperity throughout the New Year. Holiday cheese pie is essential. A silver coin is placed in it for luck and prosperity and a piece of cornel tree for good health. Special buns are baked in the shape of circles, horseshoes or a figure-of-eight. The Jewish New Year is called Rosh Hashanah and it takes place in early fall. People eat apples and honey for a sweet year to come. The Chinese New Year (in February) follows the lunar calendar when they eat lucky foods: Noodles, symbolising a long life, and dumplings which resemble gold nuggets.
The Indalo shape (whether it be classical like Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, or spiritual as in the Rainbow Warrior of the ancient North American Indian Cree tribe), is a popular symbol (like the clover leaf, horseshoe, or scarab) used to pass on good luck sentiments to friends and family.
Our lucky charms come from Almeria in southern Spain close to where the original Indalos were discovered. This is a region of ancient culture believed to be the origin of the Neolithic civilisation that spread up into the whole of northern Europe between 4000 and 2000 BC – and the beginning of a megalithic era that was one of the great periods of Spanish and European history and included the construction of the mystical monuments of Stonehenge and Avebury in Britain. Cave paintings of Indalo-type shapes mingle with representations of suns, spirals, animals and labyrinths, each with their own mystical and esoteric meaning.
