Day Number 365
By Jade Arroyo
Get ready for the New Year in the best way. Between that elegant dinner to which you were invited, the casual toast with friends, or going see the fireworks in the Jardín, you will need a few traditional touches to get you in tune with the festive feeling.
If you are looking for that special something to complement your nighttime attire, try Darla’s store, located on the corner of Correo and Recreo. Here you can find that classy pearl necklace (in a variety of shapes and sizes) or other whimsical and festive accessories. On New Year’s Eve, tradition dictates wearing red lingerie for love and yellow for money.
Come get yours at one of the larger stores in the city (Liverpool, Mega or Aurrera). A pair of bright-colored undies will also make an excellent fun gift.
To pamper yourself and show you at your best, visit the Emelia and Felisa spa on San Francisco 39. There you can get a Thai massage, a hot stones treatment, a manicure and a pedicure to be glowing. Then turn your steps towards Ignacio Ramirez Market to buy the traditional twelve grapes for you and your guests.
To welcome midnight and hug your loved ones, there is no better place than the Jardín with its sparkling Christmas tree, the view of the Parroquia, and the night sky lit by fireworks as a backdrop.
