New year’s eve is approaching and apart from the food and drink, the Vasilopita is the center of attention. The vasilopita is a new year’s cake that has a coin hidden in it and is cut at midnight. It is traditional for each family to have their own vasilopita and a piece is cut for each family member. If the coin is in your piece you supposedly have good luck for the rest of the year. Sometimes the vasilopita is cut the next day and businesses as well as associations and ministries all have vasilopites that they cut during the first few weeks of the year.
