    Default New Year traditions

    What's the crack with this fucking piece of coal now? You have to bring a lump of coal inside on New Year's Day?

    It signifies that you will have a good year and not want for stuff like fuel, and food as you bring food in as well.

    Is it true that it has to be someone with dark hair that brings in new year or is that just some daft rubbish that my family told me?
