Today, New Year’s Day, Greeks eat vasilopita — a cake with a foil wrapped coin inside. The person who gets the piece with the coin will have good luck all year long. If you want to whip up your own, here’s a vasilopita recipe (my kids will be hoping to score the coin at Grandma’s house today).
Happy 2013! How did you ring in the New Year? What traditions do you have (and did anyone else bang pots when they were kids to make noise…?)
