2. Pasta/Noodles
Spaghetti or pansit has always been a Filipino food staple for every occasion and are considered as symbols of long life.

Eating twelve grapes (which represent the twelve months of the year) is said to bring luck for the coming year. Round fruits like oranges are also believed to symbolize coins and represent good luck and wealth.


6. Green Veggies
Vegetables are also eaten on New Year’s Day because when cooked, they resemble crumpled money.
