New Years, 13 Round Fruit.....so What The Heck Exactly Is The Story

My wife says 12, not 13, but they are supposed to be all different.  I ask her why... she says... "because".  Good enough for me!

 

She does it more out of tradition than superstition.  It amuses me that they never question anything here.  When I ask 'why' they just look at me confused, like no one has ever asked. I am not arguing with her, I just want to know the meaning behind it.  All she can say is 'because it is New Years'.  It seems that since everyone does it (within regional differences) there is no reason to question it.  :tiphat:

My wife also wore polka dots and had coins on the table in addition to the round fruit. I guess she covered all bases (whatever those bases are???)
