"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

25 Strangest New Year’s Traditions From Around The World by David Pegg

In Denmark they save all of their unused dishes and plates until the 31st of December when they affectionately shatter them against the doors of all their friends and family.

In Ecuador they celebrate the New Year by burning paper filled scarecrows at midnight. They also burn photographs from the last year. All in the name of good fortune.

In Romania they throw their spare coins into the river to get good luck.

In Scotland the first person to cross the threshold of a home in the new year should carry a gift for good luck, perhaps a coin, bread, salt, coal, evergreen, and/or a drink (usually whiskey).
