#180 I miss Italian creative scaramanzia – 4

Speaking of feste…

They say eating grape for Christmas porta fortuna e soldi (‘brings good luck and money’)

The same for lenticchie (lentils) for capodanno (‘new years eve’). In Abruzzo  they use to serve 7 soups made with 7 different legumes.

Frutta secca (‘dried fruits’) like nuts, figs, dates… will bring prosperity

normally we eat frutta secca at the end of the meal, before or after coffee.

Make sure to sit down while you have your coffee, or you will become poor!
