It's an old Greek custom to smash a pomegranate against the door of our house on New Year's Day in order to bring good luck to our home.The more the seeds, the luckier and more prosperous we'll be.The pomegranate is a blessed Superfood, present in Greek mythology as the symbol of fertility.So, it seems appropriate to us to smash this pomegranate, which eTwinners have painted, for our new project wishing all of us the BEST of luck.We are really delighted that a new eTwinning experience has just started!

We enjoyed reading about the old Greek custom,Unfortunately, in the Czech Republic we don't grow pomegranates, but apples. It happens that we have a Christmas custom with apples. On Christmas Eve, if you cut an apple in the middle and there is a star, it is a good sign and you will be healthy and happy all the new year.If there is a cross, it is no good for you. Now, at the beginning of this project, we have cut an apple and you can see on your own the beautiful star in the middle - it is great and our project is going to be great, too.
