The day before yesterday we cut the vasilopita. Vasilopita is the new year's cake. We put a coin, wrapped with aluminium foil, in it and the one who receives the piece with the coin would be lucky the whole year. We cut it a little late. We usually do that the first day of the year,but we were busy cutting other vasilopitas in other houses haha. So the big winner in our house was the babyyyy!! Yeah! Seriously, no tricks! And I say that, cause usually mamas and grandmas cheat, so the little kid on the family wins. The funny fact is that when I was in the kitchen, sifting powdered sugar over the cake, I was thinking how boring would be to go all the way to the living room and get a coin (so silly). So I took a beer bottle cap that I found on the table (someone was drinking again), wrapped it with foil and put it in the cake. I hope my son has a strong sence of humor when he will grow up cause I'm going to keep it for him.
The first person who enters the home in the New Year is supposed to bring good or bad luck.So many people ask a lucky friend or relative, but mostly little kids to enter the house with the right foot. Baby did pothariko at our neighbours and at my mama's....
