How are you ringing in the New Year? 

Local markets are now overflowing with fruits, and for many families, it’s been a tradition to display 12—for some, even 13—circular fruits on the table.

What’s with the round goodies? They are believed to attract good luck for the coming year. Representing every month of the year, they are known to symbolize coins or money for prosperity and abundance. 

Should you opt to limit your outside activities and reduce your trips to the grocery store, you may check out these online brands that are offering the “lucky” fruits you’ll be needing in 2021. Since they are delivering fresh finds at their tastiest, you can also turn them into a refreshing shake, ice cream, or fruit salad after your NYE celebration.
