We provided you some inspiration on how to celebrate the holidays in Europe, we’ve given you the top 10 New Year’s destinations and we’ve even created a Pinterest board to show you what New Year’s Eve celebrations look like around the world. So, are you planning to ring in the New Year in a new corner of the world this year? Or, maybe you’re just curious what will be going on around the world as the clock strikes midnight?

Our friends at TakeLessons put together an infographic outlining 30 bizarre New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day traditions around the world. If you’re in Spain, for example, you’ll want to get 12 grapes ready to eat with each strike of the clock. In Turkey, make sure you have a few pomegranates ready to throw off your balcony for good luck.

No matter where you are ringing in the New Year, we wish you much happiness and health in 2016.
