The passage of the new year is rife with symbolism. For many, it represents a fresh start, an opportunity to create anew and to shed any woes that accumulated over the previous 365 days. As such, people around the globe welcome the new year with unique rituals –– many of them focused on ushering good luck, prosperity, and longevity.
We bake coins into cakes, eat black-eyed peas, greens, noodles and 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight, light fireworks, and the list goes on. Whatever way you welcome the new year, or new beginnings, our surroundings can play a big role in how inspired we feel day to day and through the ups and downs. With that in mind, here are some works of art we think will help create an inspired new year!
