This is a wonderful idea. A friend of mine has eaten the grapes with her family for years. Her husband is Italian descent. This must have originated in Europe.
I am planning to begin the first day back with a New year's lesson. I was linking it with our school wide character ed lessons for the Pursuit of Excellence. So now I will finish the lesson by adding the grapes and a grape juice toast as we share our goals/resolutions. Happy New Year!
