Celebrate the New Year with some lucky traditions!

Yes, poker is largely a game of skills, and learning the ins and outs of the game can lead you to success. However, there is an underlying component of luck you can't ignore: what kind of hole cards do you get? Will the community cards line up perfectly to help you create a winning combo?

If you want to draw more luck than ever before, you should try some popular New Year's traditions that can – supposedly - bring you luck as you play Everygame poker. Which traditions might you try to boost your luck this year?

Top Poker New Year's Traditions to Boost Your Luck

So, what can you do to get luck on your side as you play poker and pursue other ventures this year? Here are a few traditions you should try:

  • Eating 12 grapes at midnight – According to this Spanish tradition, eating the twelve grapes of luck can turn your year around. On the night of December 31, you are supposed to each a grape with each strike of the clock bell, as the grapes represent the upcoming twelve months. Those who practice this tradition tend to eat the special grapes at home with their families or while congregating in main squares with like-minded people.
  • Keep some cash in your wallet – They say that the way you start a year will reflect on all twelve months ahead of you. So, if you want to have a financially stable year, filled with poker wins, you should celebrate New Year's with some extra cash in your pockets! Do your best to start the year off debt-free, as some even refrain from lending money on New Year's Day itself.
  • Open the door (for a brief moment only) – Another popular tradition states that you need to let the old year out the door and welcome the new one. Some even open all the windows at home to speed up the process, inviting good luck into their houses. But don't worry, you don't have to keep your doors and windows open until you freeze, as tradition states you need to open your doors for mere moments before the clock strikes twelve.
  • Make some noise – Apparently, the evil spirits that might linger in your house and chase your luck off get scared by loud noises. Therefore, celebrating the upcoming year as loudly as possible, with music and as much noise as you can muster can actually make the upcoming year free of bad luck!
  • Surround yourself with people (and things) you love – As we've already mentioned, the way you start your year will keep affecting you for months to come. So, it is important for you to surround yourself with everything and anything that can brighten up your days: celebrate with family and friends, play a nice round of poker, and kick 2024 off with a bang!

Happy New Year!

Celebrating New Year's is not only about drinking plenty of champagne and having a few days off work. This special celebration also gives you an opportunity to change your mindset for the upcoming year and get your priorities straight.
