Fruits for a Fruitful New Year

Filipinos celebrate the coming of the New Year by filling their tables with food for the media noche or midnight meal. It is recommended that there are 12 different round fruits to represent prosperity in each of the coming year's 12 months.

When it comes to completing the fruit list, we practice flexibility in quantity - the number 12 may be exceeded. Following is a picture of the fruits we served on a bilao and a clay tray.

New Year, traditions, fruits
