New year’s Eve in Spain

New year´s Eve is the last evening of the year. In Spain it's a very important event. Everybody celebrates a big party and people usually wear beautiful clothes. First, I have dinner with my friends, then at quarter to twelve, we get ready for the twelve grapes, because at twelve o’clock we eat twelve grapes when we listen to the twelve strokes of the clock of ¨la puerta del sol¨ square in Madrid. Later, I go to a discotheque with my friends. It is a custom to drink hot chocolate and ¨churros¨( tipycal Spanish pastry ) in this disco at 6:00 am. Finally, we go home because everybody is very tired.
