Cebu City, Philippines—In just a couple of weeks, we prepare to welcome another year with a bang by celebrating on New Year’s eve.

Aside from the fireworks and food, one of the most common traditions of Filipinos during Media Noche is to serve 12 different round fruits on the table. 

Round fruits are considered lucky for their shape as are believed to bring in good luck and fortune.
